About this talk

- BrightTALK at Infosecurity Europe 2017 - One month on from the WannaCry attacks, we'll be discussing their influence on the cyber security industry; whether it was a success for the cyber criminals and what organisations could've done to be better protected. This expert panel will cover how the ransomware spread, why there's been an explosion over the last few years, why businesses are especially vulnerable and how the malware is more and more intertwined with crypto currencies. Fighting Ransomware was a top priority on security professionals' minds in 2016 and that will only continue into 2017. Tune into this live panel to get insights and takeaways to protect your business from the threat of ransomware.
