About this talk

Recently, Costa Rica has declared a state of national emergency, and later on, stated that the country is at war, due to a wide spread cyberattack by the Conti group intended to overthrow the government. This might represent a new era in ransomware evolution as a cybercrime group aims to be a significant player in a geopolitical area. This new state of affairs requires organizations to re-consider their ransomware protection strategy. Join us, on June 9 to learn about this latest ransomware attack and how Check Point can help prevent ransomware attacks on your organization. Webinar highlights: • The Costa Rica story- how did a cybercrime group created a state of national emergency • The evolution of ransomware attacks and what can we learn from it • Review and demo of Check Point’s anti-ransomware capabilities against Conti-group attacks
