Event Details

develop proactive and defensive tactics to protect yourself from cyber threats

The first step to understanding ransomware is assuming that your organization will be victimized—it's just a matter of when. This webinar will help you develop proactive and defensive tactics to best protect yourself from cyber threats. Ransomware incidents have reached epidemic proportions with 90% of attacks occurring through email.  Education and training among organizations is the best defense.  From loss of data to employee turnover, ransomware poses a very real threat to today’s businesses, and as such, a sophisticated understanding is needed to protect and secure your organization.
