Learn five easy steps for stopping the next ransomware outbreak

While the WannaCry ransomware scare was a wake-up call for many, the Petya/NotPetya outbreak just a few weeks later quickly showed that many organisations are still asleep when it comes to protection against modern ransomware.

The most remarkable aspect of both attacks was that simple, effective security practices could have kept these threats from going anywhere from the start.

Join Rick McElroy, Security Strategist at Carbon Black, in a free webinar where he looks back at the two most recent outbreaks and shares the top five actions to take today to keep an organisation safe when the next big ransomware attack hits.

During the webinar, Rick will cover:

•    How Wannacry and Petya/NonPetya highlighted the need to improve basic security practices.

•    Five tactical best practices that wil help defend against the next big attack.

•    Why next-generation security platforms are necessary to combat new and emerging threats.

•    Carbon Black’s webinar takes place on Friday, July 21 at 11am Sydney time. It will be repeated at two alternate times.  Details and register HERE.

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
