Don’t let your organisation be held to ransom

It’s painfully clear that ransomware attacks aren’t going away anytime soon. In fact, attack techniques and delivery methods have become more sophisticated, prolific, speedy and costly (think Petya and WanaCrypt0r).

Increasingly popular tactics include spear phishing campaigns tailored to a specific person or group of people using personal data, and whaling, which impersonates the email account of a CEO or other executive to infiltrate a network. These methods let ransomware move across networks and organizations at lightning speeds, causing costly downtime (and annoying headaches!) and potentially expensive damage to bottom lines and reputations.

Join Palo Alto Networks for an exclusive roundtable to understand: 

  • The newest trends and developments in ransomware from Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 Threat Intelligence
  • Why traditional antivirus comes up short in ransomware detection
  • How Palo Alto Networks Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection prevents ransomware and improves your network security
  • Strategies to break down attacks

In the afternoon, for the more technically inclined we’ll also provide a hands-on workshop focusing on ransomware. During this work shop you will experience the breakdown of a ransomware attack and how Palo Alto Networks Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection provides an effortless approach to managing these attacks.
