Ransomware - To pay or not to pay?

Presented by

Peter Mackenzie, Malware Escalations Manager, Sophos

About this talk

Flying spiders, snakes, and ghosts are long gone. Ransomware is now the stuff of nightmares and it’s easy to see why. Ransomware has become one of the most widespread and damaging threats internet users now face. Since the infamous CryptoLocker first appeared in 2013, we’ve seen a new era of file-encrypting ransomware variants delivered through spam messages and Exploit Kits, extorting money from home users and businesses alike. Join Sophos ransomware pro, Peter Mackenzie, as he shows us how ransomware attacks work, explains why so many new infections keep surfacing, and what practical precautions you can take to protect your organisation. If this webinar doesn’t help an IT Hero sleep at night, we don’t know what will.
