I’m excited to discuss the hot (and frightful) topic of ransomware. Be prepared for a great presentation from Mike as he shares the best tips to protecting your network.
In comes ransomware, malicious software, or malware, that locks up the information on an individual’s or an organization’s computer like documents, photos and music. It will not release these files until the user pays a fee — or ransom — to unlock these files and get them back. Without the appropriate defenses, ransomware can inflict enough damage to reduce an organization to operating with pen and paper.
