All Your Data are Belong to Us; How to Stay Protected Against Ransomware

Ransomware has become one of the most widespread and damaging threats that Internet users face. Since the infamous Cryptolocker first appeared in 2013, we’ve seen a new era of file-encrypting ransomware variants delivered through spam messages and exploit kits, extorting money from home users and businesses alike.
Large numbers of new infections continue to surface despite existing protective measures. How are they so successful, what are the mechanisms that these infections use and how can we protect ourselves from the threats posed by ransomware?

What you will take away from this session

  • A review of the ransomware threat
  • Practical recommendations to protect against ransomware
  • Best practices to apply immediately
  • Long-term technical and organisational measures to consider
