Not a week goes by where we don’t see a news story on some municipality, education system, or small business getting hit with a ransomware attack. Why? They work very well. People pay the ransom. They also have weak network controls, outdated patches, and little to no awareness training. Our group will highlight some of the attack vectors used, go thru a brief negotiation, and answer your questions as we address the ransomware issue.

Eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
