Speaker: Terry Labach, IST
Cybercriminals have sought to make money in many ways by attacking our computer systems. Recent years have seen a rise in popularity of ransomware – software that takes computers and data hostage. Victims are told to pay up, or face crippling losses.
In this presentation, Terry will trace the growth of the ransomware industry. He will give examples of the software used in attacks and offer some countermeasures that can prevent or mitigate ransomware attacks.
This talk was first presented at WatITis 2016.
