There’s no shortage of educational content on ransomware. This webinar takes an end-to-end look at the crime’s inner workings. Hear from a security researcher who built a ransomware operation from the ground up to gain a better understanding of its origins, how it works, and why we can expect exponentially more attacks. Then, get practical advice and prevention techniques from an expert in advanced threat detection and research. You’ll learn strategies for building a holistic IT security program and preventative methods your organization can implement today with near zero business impact.
