Ransomware: All Locked Up with No Place to Go | UBTech Conference

Ransomware: All Locked Up with No Place to Go

Your screen freezes and a dialogue box pops up to tell you that your computer is locked and your files will all be gone forever if you don’t pay up. Since many victims are willing to pay the ransom, this type of crypto-malware is on the rise, netting millions of dollars for cybercriminals looking for a substantial return on their minimal investment.

During this session you will hear from Mark Villinski at Kaspersky Lab, on what they as a security vendor are seeing in this growing area of focus for both security vendors and cybercriminals. Areas of focus will include:

  • Common ransomware scenarios and delivery mechanisms
  • Trends in this growing form of cybercrime
  • Recommendations to help your organization avoid being a victim
