Webcast: What About Ransomware?





This is a joint webcast between Black Hills Information Security and the Wild West Hackin’ Fest conference.

We hate ransomware. Like a lot. This is because we feel this is the future of cyber attacks. If you look at the recent cases and the newish versions that involve extortion, there is nothing to like. Well, almost nothing.

In this webcast, we cover what you can do to prepare (trust us, we have a newish twist on this) and what you can do to mitigate the damage.

We also talk about working with brokers.

There will be lots of memes to help this topic go down better.
