May 18, 2021 – Master Class on Ransomware Detection & Mitigation

May 18, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Master Class on IT Security:
Roger Grimes Teaches Ransomware Mitigation

Join us for a lively, interactive ONLINE session presented by data-driven defence evangelist with KnowBe4, Roger Grimes.


Cyber-criminals have become thoughtful about ransomware attacks; taking time to maximize your organization’s potential damage and their payoff. Protecting your network from their growing threat is more important than ever. And nobody knows this more than Roger A. Grimes, Data-Driven Defence Evangelist at KnowBe4.

With 30+ years experience as a computer security consultant, instructor, and award-winning author, Roger has dedicated his life to making sure you’re prepared to defend against quickly-evolving IT security threats like ransomware.

Join Roger for this timely webinar to learn what you can do to prevent, detect, and mitigate ransomware. You’ll learn:

  • How to detect ransomware programs, even those that are highly stealthy
  • Official recommendations from the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)
  • The policies, technical controls, and education you need to stop ransomware in its tracks
  • Why a good backup (even offline backups) no longer saves you from ransomware

You can learn how to identify and stop these attacks before they wreak havoc on your network.
