Preparing For The Ransomware Onslaught -- Part 1: Ransomware Prevention
In the past year, many enterprises have been attacked by cybercriminals who encrypted their data – and demanded money to decrypt it. This “ransomware” is infecting more and more businesses each day – but there are ways to limit its impact.
In this webinar – part of a three-part series of webinars on ransomware – top experts will discuss methods for preventing ransomware code from getting through your enterprise defenses, and how you can limit its reach. You’ll learn how ransomware is developed, how it is deployed, and how it evades standard IT security tools and defenses. You’ll hear about ransomware attackers – how they work, and their strategies for encrypting your data. Most importantly, you’ll learn techniques for stopping ransomware in its tracks before it can run rampant through your environment.
Of course, the best security teams are the ones who are prepared for the days when their best security preventions fail. So don’t miss the rest of the Dark Reading ransomware security trilogy, sponsored by Code42:
