HTC's HACK IT- “Your Ransomware is Showing”

MCE, Tech Council, EDA

5/26/16 4:30 PM

Join us for a panel discussion with national and local experts in the cyber field, as we talk about a particularly severe type of malware that is affecting our area: Ransomware. Ransomware encrypts critical files on the computer system that it has infected, and demands that the user pay a ransom to regain access to the data. Ransomware has become the most nefarious challenge for security vendors today because of the inability of existing technologies to remediate once the damage has been done; even though the frequency of ransomware attacks hasn't much changed, the increased severity of these breaches has made it the most vexing issue facing employers today. When it comes to crypto-ransomware, it’s not the ransom that’s so damaging to your business. It’s the downtime. Should you be concerned? YES! Should you pay? Come find out. Register early, space is limited. Light refreshments will be served.
