Course Description

Imagine turning on your computer one day to find that all your data files have been encrypted, but a criminal holds the key necessary for you to regain access to and use of these files. This is the classic definition of RANSOMWARE.

Ransomware is an epidemic in the world right now. Ransomware continues to plague individuals and businesses of all sizes and in all industries and represents one of the biggest security threats we face today. Yet few are taking the steps necessary to reduce the risk associated with the potential loss of data associated with ransomware and the risk of a ransomware attack being considered a breach of confidential information. 

In this course, you will learn how you can implement an effective system of control to mitigate the risk that you will become yet another victim or ransomware. Learn the best practices for reducing the chances that your data is held hostage along with key recovery tactics in the event your preventive efforts fail.

While Cyber Security is complicated and technical, the basic safeguards are simple, inexpensive and very effective. These basic safeguards go a long way in the prevention and restoration of ransomware. Follow the THREE ITEMS OUTLINED IN THIS WEBINAR & YOU WILL NEVER PAY A RANSOM DEMAND.
