Ransomware Training – One Day Class
Please join us for our virtual Ransomware Class on Thursday, March 9th, 2023!
Ransomware is an epidemic. In the blink of an eye, everything from your financial records to emails to file shares have been encrypted, possibly never to be seen again. This is the nightmare that organizations around the world have faced, as they grapple with the most destructive and terrifying of all cyberattacks. Today, ransomware is often the last stage of a data breach, launched by criminals after they have already stolen massive volumes of data. Exposure threats are on the rise, as criminals threaten to publish data if they don’t receive their payment.
Our ransomware training class teaches you how to respond to ransomware effectively and efficiently. We’ll show you modern ransomware strains in action, including videos and screenshots, and point out key indicators that can facilitate early detection. Then we’ll delve into core elements of the response: triage, evidence preservation, scoping, negotiation, decryption, and more. Finally, we’ll discuss whether ransomware is also a data breach, and how to handle potentially long-term consequences. This ransomware training class includes simple steps you can take to reduce your risk of a ransomware attack and respond effectively, now and in the future.
What you will learn:
- Identify early indicators of compromise for ransomware cases
- Stop ransomware before it takes over your network
- Effectively contain ransomware
- Understand how and why to preserve evidence in ransomware cases
- Describe an effective ransom negotiation strategy
- Decrypt data safely and efficiently
