Ransomware: Fighting Digital Kidnapping

Ransomware attacks are considered the most prevalent cybersecurity threat impacting both businesses and individuals alike. This state of affairs is possible because ramsomware authors have developed ingenious ways of using social engineering tactics to exploit human errors in the delivery of their malware.

Recent events have thrown the spotlight on ransomware incidents with security experts predicting an increase. For instance, Cisco Systems indicates that ransomware attacks are growing more than 350 percent annually and Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that a ransomware attack will hit a business every 11 seconds by 2021, and the estimated damage caused by ransomware will cost the world $20 billion in 2021.

Hence, the tenth episode in this series seeks to explore the ways malicious actors deploy and use ransomware.

Our guest speaker, Mr. Chinedu Onwukike is a Cyber Security Veteran and is currently senior red team specialist at Canada Life.

Registration for this event is required as we have limited seats available.
