Description

Rene Pelletier

Please join us, Wednesday, May 16th, when our guest speaker will be Rene Pelletier, Principal at Auditor General of Alberta. Rene will be speaking on the hot topic of ransomware, a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.

Ransomware has been around since the 1980s. The proliferation and sharing of attack tools on the dark web has recently made ransomware tools available to those with very little technical knowledge. But that isn't why ransomware is becoming one of the biggest threats on the Internet today. Ransomware has become so successful because it effectively exploits panic in end users.

What you’ll take away:

- The history of ransomware

- How to respond to and defend against ransomware

- How to avoid being an easy target

Please join us on May 16th to hear more.
