Learning Ransomware Countermeasures

Ransomware, a form of malware, is a threat to everyone. It spreads through phishing or other methods that get the victim to click a link. To avoid an attack, good security practices are important, both at home and at the office. The course provides an overview of the types of ransomware, including onion and mobile ransomware, and covers ways of safeguarding a Windows computer from risks. It is designed not just for IT pros, but anyone who wants to protect against ransomware and other types of cyberattacks. Security professional Lisa Bock covers best practices for securing routers, updating your software, strengthening passwords, identifying spam and other forms of social engineering, and reporting ransomware attacks to authorities. She closes with some simple ways that you can prevent your network from becoming infected, including a tabletop exercise to help your organization test your response to attacks.
