    Ransomware attacks across industries are continuously increasing at an alarming rate. Hackers typically take full control of their targets’ systems through phishing emails or infected websites. Unless a ransom is paid, the infected system will be permanently locked and inaccessible to its owner.

    Listen as a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the most pressing cybersecurity issues concerning ransomware. Speakers will highlight the best defense strategies which cybersecurity leaders can apply to their organization.
