Ransomware hit between 1 in 3 businesses during 2016 and is the fastest growing malware threat according to the U.S. Department of Justice. If you've been laid back about ransomware attacks, now might be a great time to change your ways.

This informative webinar will review strategic, educational, and operational approaches your company can employ to help in this fight including:
• Tactics and procedures you should consider implementing.
• How ransomware is used as a tool rather than a stand-alone weapon in targeted attacks.
• Common risks to avoid such as password reuse and the lack of safety training.
• How threat intelligence is used to contextualize indicators of compromise.
