The threat of ransomware is very real. Studies have found that it has hit one in three companies. And crypto-ransomware like Cryptolocker and Cryptowall are the scourge of the web – and with new and ever-more sophisticated variants springing up rapidly this year, have become the tool of choice for online blackmail and extortion by cybercriminals.

The threat of ransomware escalates as its quality improves and becomes ever more difficult to detect, potentially lying dormant on your systems, waiting to strike.

Security teams, therefore, need to be awake to the threats of extortionate malware. 

Join us for this webinar, where a panel of experts will explore the threat of ransomware and answer your questions. Participate in the discussion as the panel discusses:

  • What varieties of ransomware are being used today?
  • What is crypto-ransomware and how does it work?
  • How does it get onto your systems, your network?
  • What can you do to protect your organization?
