The Rise and Rise of Ransomware: Prepare and Protect

Presented by

Nick Frost, Principal Consultant, ISF

About this talk

The expectation from the start of 2017 – that we hadn’t seen the back of ransomware – was justified. 2017 was plagued with global attacks such as Petya, WannaCry, Bad Rabbit and many others. Unfortunately, 2018 could be even worse. With ransomware continuously developing new delivery techniques, organisations must learn how to prepare and protect themselves from the threat of ransomware, but how can they do this? In this webinar, Nick Frost, Principal Consultant at the ISF, will explore the latest threats in ransomware and what organisations can do to minimise vulnerabilities to reduce risks of an attack. About the presenter: Nick is currently the Principal Researcher for the Information Security Forum (ISF) Ltd. He has more than 15 years’ experience designing and implementing a risk-based approach to securing information. He has developed leading solutions for evaluating risk across both internal and supplier environments.
