Anti-Ransomware: How to Turn the Tables

  • G. Mark Hardy
  • Tuesday, October 17th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm

OMG! WTF! We just got hit with Ransomware! What you don't usually hear next is LOL! You can build defenses that prevent Ransomware from paralyzing your organization -- we'll show you how.

Ransomware is a billion dollar industry, and it's growing tremendously. Lost productivity costs far more than the average ransom, so exec just say, "Pay the darn thing." But what if you could stop Ransomware in its tracks?

We'll demonstrate tools and methodologies that are battle-proven and ACTUALLY WORK as evidenced by fully contained Ransomware "explosions" that went nowhere. Plus with insights into the future of this attack vector, we'll offer predictions on how this "industry" will evolve and what to expect next.
