WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2017, 12PM-1PM
ATTENDEES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR ONE CLE CREDIT!
RANSOMWARE CONTINUES TO PERSIST AS A SIGNIFICANT BUSINESS RISK AND THE STAKES ARE GETTING HIGHER
New variants of ransomware are even more hostile, in some cases deleting critical files, and damaging systems regardless of whether or not the ransom is paid. Join our panel of experts as we examine:
- Best practices for preventing an attack
- What to do if you experience a ransomware incident
- Insurance products that can help mitigate the risk
- A legal overview of the ransomware landscape
Despite the dramatic increase in ransomware events, many organizations have not taken reasonable steps for preventing an attack, and are ill-prepared to respond. Our experts will provide you with actionable tips to greatly reduce the business impact to your organization.
