Building a Ransomware Defense
Title: Building a Ransomware Defense
Presenters: Luke McNamara, Principal Analyst, FireEye, Jon Ford, Director of Global Strategy and Operations for Government, Dan Lohrmann
Ransomware is a remote, digital shakedown. It is disruptive and expensive, and it affects organizations of all sizes and in many industries. Government, however, faces greater risks and impact. Infections have shut down entire operations, forcing law enforcement agencies to drop cases and hospitals to turn away patients. But there may be a silver lining. Focusing defensive efforts in key areas and with practiced response planning may allow organizations to stop ransomware before it is deployed.
Listen to Government Technology and FireEye to hear how advanced detection and prevention and front line response practices -- supported by actionable threat intelligence -- are the best defense against ransomware and other advanced attacks. View the webcast to better understand:
