Ransomware: The Cyber Warfare Attack Tools Being Deployed Against You

August 22, 2019 | 2:00 PM3:00 PM

Featured Speaker: Douglas Holland, Solutions Engineer, Akamai

Ransomware attacks are on the rise, with at least 22 reported breaches of public sector networks in 2019 alone. Popular targets are cities, police stations, and schools, and the attacks can tally up millions of dollars in recovery costs. This situation is likely much worse, as many ransomware attacks are unreported. Public sector organizations are typically understaffed and underfunded, making them ripe targets for malicious actors intent on causing disruption and extortion.


Attendees of this webinar were able to learn about:

  • What ransomware is
  • How systems are infected
  • How implementing a Zero Trust security model can help minimize the chances of a ransomware attack on your organization
