Combatting Ransomware & Phishing - Practical tips to staying safe online


About the Event

Learn practical tips to combat Ransomware & Phishing, as well as what you should do in the event of a Ransomware attack, by joining us in this insightful webinar Cybersecurity researchers estimate that the average payment following a ransomware attack in 2020 rose 171% to $312,493, compared to $115,123 in 2019. Not surprisingly, a significant portion of ransomware attacks stem from an innocent-looking phishing e-mail.

Apart from losing access to both business and personal data (think about those precious photographs and memories!), attackers have been known to exfiltrate and sell their victim’s data on the dark web. The perpetuators of the NetWalker ransomware, for example, exposed confidential business data of more than 100 organizations around the world.
