Ransomware Response: On-Demand, Virtual Ransomware Training Class Teaches IT Pros Ransomware Triage, Response & Remediation


Ransomware is an epidemic; this ransomware response training class teaches IT professionals to be prepared before disaster strikes! 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. What makes this ransomware class different? It’s taught by industry expert Matt Durrin who has extensive hands-on ransomware response, research, and remediation experience. It’s also MORE than an on-demand ransomware training class—you can schedule live question-and-answer times with an instructor!
