Practical Defenses Against Ransomware: BITDet2017 Panel

Experts from Duo Security, VDA Labs, and NetWorks Group joined the Detroit event to share their experiences and strategies defending against Ransomware on three fronts: user training, prevention tools, and data recovery.

According to MalwareBytes, 35% of SMBs were hit by Ransomware in 2017, and with headlines packed with stories of Wannacry, Locky, and Cryptowall, it’s no surprise that Ransomware sits at the top of the list of high-interest security topics in the BIT community.

In response, Build IT Together Detroit 2017 included the first BIT panel dedicated entirely to the topic of Ransomware, and exploring the alignment that needs to happen between leadership, IT staff, and end-users to resist threats.

View the recording above, and learn from current security trends, how to best strengthen and simplify your defenses.
