Cyber Security – The First Line of Defense in this New Age of Security Risks
October 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
You are the first line of defense against a cyber breach. Ransomware or other malicious software usually finds its way into IT systems through phishing emails opened by an employee or by clicking infected links on non-trusted websites. After a piece of malware is installed on a computer, it has the ability to spread across other computers that it is connected to, thus infecting and blocking access to the entire network. Today’s hackers are extremely sophisticated and are using multiple methods to breach your networks.
In this Cyber Awareness session we will discuss:
Ransomware, Malware, Phishing, Spear Phishing, Whaling, Viruses, Spam, Social Engineering, Hyperlinks, Attachments, Display names and Malicious Websites
