2021 Virtual Symposium
Phishing/Ransomware Readiness

Wednesday, October 27, 2021 | 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET
Web Conference, Cincinnati Metro Area

The Colonial Pipeline and other recent attacks illustrated the damage ransomware and phishing can do. Security teams need help identifying what’s needed to better prepare and defend against the scourge in 2021 and beyond, including:

  • Case studies from the news: What victims did wrong and what they did right
  • Tools/techniques to reduce likelihood of a successful attack
  • Tools/techniques to use if an initial attack is successful
  • Ransom pay/negotiations: how to proceed – whether you intend to pay or not
