Now That Ransomware Has Gone Nuclear, How Can You Avoid Becoming the Next Victim?
Date: Thursday, September 9th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT
There is a reason more than half of today’s ransomware victims end up paying the ransom. Cyber-criminals have become thoughtful; taking time to maximize your organization’s potential damage and their payoff. After achieving root access, the bad guys explore your network reading email, finding data troves and once they know you, they craft a plan to cause the most panic, pain, and operational disruption. Ransomware has gone nuclear.

- Evolved threats from data-theft, credential leaks, and corporate impersonation
- Why ransomware isn’t your real problem
