Credits: None available.


Ransomware is a combination of social engineering, deception, technology, encryption algorithms, stealth, data analytics, business analysis, high-pressure negotiation, and a highly unusual manifestation of customer service. Defending against ransom and ransomware is still a moving target. Every day organizations that believe their ransomware defense is under control must deal with the cruel reality of breaches and long-lasting consequences. We take a new look at ransom-based attacks based on recent, real-life events. Learn about current trends and discuss detection/prevention techniques. We provide a practical example of what to do if you are ever faced with a successful ransom(ware) attack, and how to resolve the most difficult and stressful situation to the most acceptable outcome.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand current ransom and ransomware attacks.
  • Create an action plan for approaching ransom and ransomware defenses.
  • Effectively prevent ransom and ransomware attacks.
