Topic Abstract:

As per Google, it’s estimated that last year cybercrime victims paid around $24 million to hackers deploying ransomware, and it has increased to over $1 billion this year. Ransomware/crypto attacks are becoming one of the biggest cyber threats to both individuals and businesses.

In many cases, you can’t guarantee normal access to the files even after you pay the ransom. Most modern ransomware performs extra functions to hamper the recovery of data by encrypting the shadow copies used for system restore points or even deleting them.

In this webinar, we will talk about what you should do to prevent or better survive one of these attacks. This will include a detailed plan of action for the different stages of a crypto attack.

Key takeaways:

  • A plan of action for all stages of the attack
  • Do you pay the ransom?
  • Learn how to prevent future attacks
