Ransomware is spreading at an alarming pace and infecting networks across all industries and company sizes, primarily through phishing attacks. The cyber criminals behind the attacks are furiously innovating and keeping ahead of defenses. In this web conference, we will have an interactive discussion on the latest in ransomware threats and how to best protect your organization and yourself against this growing threat.

This session will educate attendees about the newest features of ransomware strains designed to evade detection and spread in new and creative ways. It will also cover recent attacks and how the victim organizations could have better protected themselves.

The session will examine:

•  Current phishing trends
•  Ransomware and how it is infecting networks
•  Effective mitigation strategies
•  Recovering from an attack
