A ransomware attack involves malicious software that is downloaded onto a victim’s device, and then used to encrypt the victim’s information. Hackers that initiate these attacks threaten to block access to the files until a ransom is paid. Ransomware attacks are becoming increasingly wide-spread these days; the most common ways for the malicious software to be installed on a victim’s device is through phishing emails, malicious ads on websites, and questionable apps and programs.

Prominent target groups of ransomware attacks are critical infrastructure establishments, state organizations, major enterprises, as well as small-to-medium businesses that don’t have a strong cyber security protection implemented. Any company or organization depending on daily access to critical data should be most worried about ransomware.

How is a ransomware attack originated? How easily can hackers access your network? How to prevent ransomware attacks and how to respond to them once they have occurred? What is the best protection against ransomware?

The Protecting Against Ransomware course was especially designed for IT and security teams to equip them with an in-depth understanding of the security threat landscape affecting their organization, and the corresponding mitigation methods. By the end of the training, participants will have an extensive amount of knowledge on how to implement the right security measures in their organization, handle various types of security incidents - ransomware in particular – and practice all they have learnt hands-on.
