About this talk

While ransomware might not be dominating the headlines, it is still a persistent threat that continues to evolve. Weaponized emails still make it past the gateway and ransomware infections happen. Today, variants of ransomware offer “customer support” offered by the cybercriminal for communication and negotiation with the victim. Ransom amounts can vary depending on the perceived wealth of the victim. Ransomware operators also offer flexible payment methods using forms of payment other than Bitcoin and even structured payment/decryption plans. As ransomware evolves, so must your response to these threats. This session will help you understand: - The impact of what happens if your users are not trained on email scrutiny - The multiple effects it can have on your enterprise - Techniques to mitigate incidents and bolster your network’s protection against future attacks
