- Presentation Slides: Preventing and Responding to Ransomware Attacks at State and Local Governments
Ransomware is malware designed to cripple computer systems by encrypting all data and files until a ransom is paid by the victim organization. Early malware variants could encrypt only one device at a time, but modern variants such as Ryuk can disable an entire network, including backup systems.
This complimentary webinar showed how this malware is spread and how it behaves once a system is affected. We outlined sound defensive measures designed to prevent ransomware, provided information on how to detect potential indicators of compromise, and reviewed recovery strategies in the event your system is attacked.
