Detecting and Mitigating Ransomware and Other Malware

Part of the Dark Reading Cybersecurity Crash Course

In the past, most cyber attack campaigns were primarily random, and they simply exploited the most vulnerable systems they could find. Today, however, there is an increasing number of sophisticated attacks – in particular, ransomware -- that target specific companies, data, or even employees. These attacks are often extremely well-disguised and may escape the security tools that most enterprises use to screen out more random attacks. What tools and defenses are there to prevent targeted attacks on your organization? In this session, you will hear about the latest types of targeted attacks and what your enterprise can do to stop them.
