This one-hour presentation will provide the audience with an understanding of ransomware, a type of malicious software that attempts to extort money from victims by restricting access to computer systems, mobile devices, and files. Staff will outline how ransomware works, why it’s so prevalent, and how individuals and organizations can best protect themselves from a ransomware infection. Videos demonstrating the following will be shown: the ransomware infection process, the impact of a ransomware attack on a small business, a hacker’s advertisement promoting the sale of a ransomware kit, and a brute-force attack on an RDP port. A Q&A session with attendees will conclude the presentation.
This program is presented by Thereasa M. Barker-Figueroa | Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst.
