  • Speaker: Justin Henderson

Ransomware is a fast-growing threat affecting thousands of government agencies and municipalities 'and now it's even targeting itself toward halting critical ICS/SCADA operations. This webcast will explain why and how ransomware is spreading, introduce standards and provide guidance for detecting and recovering from ransomware, based on US-CERT and NIST resources.

Attendees at this webcast will learn how to:

  • Adapt their architectures to enable more effective ransomware detection and response
  • Secure their systems against phishing, USB, web drive-bys and other attack vectors
  • Reduce vulnerabilities through appropriate policies and user training
  • Use baselining, monitoring, logging and analysis to detect ransomware
  • Engage reporting, forensics and secure storage in the battle against ransomware
  • Address RIPlace ransomware and its abuse of the Rename operation

The webcast will also provide special considerations that ICS/SCADA organizations need to address.
