The Increasing Risks of Ransomware: What Your Business Needs to Know and Do
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that can slow down or even immobilize a user’s computer access and then attempt to exact money to cure the problem. It can range from rogue security and tech support, to screen lockers that claim illegal activity has been detected, and most dangerously to malware that steals and encrypts the user’s files – literally holding them for ransom.
One of the most prevalent forms of cyberattack today, ransomware is aimed not only at individuals but also at businesses and institutions. Antivirus and antimalware software are essential weapons for the defensive arsenal, but larger organizations may need to take more sophisticated measures to prevent costly data corruption or loss, and to combat ransomware when it attacks.
This LIVE Webcast by The Knowledge Group will give a thorough overview of the ransomware epidemic and offer insights and practical tips on how to implement an effective cybersecurity strategy.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Ransomware Types
- Prime Targets of Ransomware
- Business Operational Risks and Legal Pitfalls
- Risk Identification and Mitigation
- Best Practices and Recommendations
