Protect Your Data from Ransomware

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

The number of ransomware incidents has exploded in the last few years, infecting hundreds of thousands of victims and costing millions of dollars.

  • A North Carolina law firm lost access to all of its client documents when it didn’t pay cyber-extortionists on time.
  • A Greenland town hall was too late to save eight years’ worth of city business data from ransomware.
  • Even a Tennessee police department was forced to pay the ransom to recover 72,000 files full of sensitive criminal and investigative records.

Ransomware is malware that’s designed to hold your data hostage unless you pay up. Wait too long—or try to rescue it—and that data can be gone for good. In this timely webinar we’ll explain ransomware and tell you how to keep cyber-kidnappers at bay.

You’ll learn:

  • About the different types of ransomware
  • How easy it is to become a victim
  • How ransomware has evolved to become more efficient
  • What you can do to protect yourself from cyber-extortion
