Ransomware: Best Defense Strategies Against Attacks
Ransomware attacks across industries are continuously increasing at an alarming rate. Hackers typically take full control of their targets’ systems through phishing emails or infected websites. Unless a ransom is paid, the infected system will be permanently locked and inaccessible to its owner.
As ransomware gets more sophisticated, businesses should look more for preventive measures rather than a cure. They must be able to adopt a robust defense strategy that will enable them to detect and prevent ransomware attacks.
Listen as speaker experts, Guy Propper (Deep Instinct LTD) and Melissa Krasnow (VLP Law Group) provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the most pressing cybersecurity issues concerning ransomware. Speakers will highlight the best defense strategies which cybersecurity leaders can apply to their organization.
