Presented by

About this talk

It is 8:00 am, and you are on the way to work. You get a frenetic call from your office – “hackers are holding your computers hostage in exchange for a ransom”. Your order processing application is one of the casualties. Your last successful backup was over a month ago. Do you pay the ransom and regain control? Your money or your data? This scene may seem to be straight out of a Hollywood movie, but for several organisations, it has become an unfortunate reality today. Ransomware is a growing menace to enterprises and consumers alike, and given the recent trends observed by FireEye, it is here to stay. Some ransomware variants encrypt your critical files, others lock you out of the systems. Some demand bitcoins, others demand payment vouchers. Some are a disruption to your business, others are just a distraction. Join the FireEye webinar “Ransomware: A Disruption or Distraction", and get an in-depth view into the mechanics of ransomware. You will learn about: 1.Ransomware: Impact & Trends 2.The Economics of Ransomware 3.A Distraction or Disruption 4.Lessons Learned: Tackling Ransomware
