How Can I Prevent Ransomware?

Of all the types of malware, ransomware is one of most dangerous. In this episode, Jen Stone (Principal Security Analyst, CISSP, CISA, QSA) sits down with Dave Ellis (VP Forensic Investigation, GCIH, CISSP, QSA, PFI) to discuss:

  • What you should do before, during, and after a ransomware attack
  • Stories from the field about ransomware attacks and responses 
  • The “compliance versus security” debate in the effort to prevent ransomware

“When it comes to your cybersecurity, don’t trust anything. Games, quizzes, and other fun apps seem harmless, but may very be collecting personal data or installing backdoors on systems,” says Ellis.
