Topic & Speaker
Current State of Ransomware presented by Roderick Chambers,
It’s a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the current landscape of ransomware and ensure your employees and clients are up-to-date with the latest ransomware defense tactics.
Experts agree that the best way to fight ransomware is by protecting your files and systems and preventing the ransomware from claiming your company as its victim. This is done with a multilayered approach:
Use a good quality antivirus program, and patch and update operating systems regularly
Educate your users about ransomware and how to detect phishing and social engineering schemes
Back up files often — and automatically. While the backup does not prevent infiltration, it does give you an out — instead of paying the ransom, you can restore to your pre-attack status
Although ransomware attacks are continuing to increase, the threat they pose can be minimized with adequate protection.
