Phishing and ransomware are serious problems and are having devastating impacts on businesses of all sizes, with ransomware alone costing organizations $209 million in just the first three months of 2016. With the success rate of these attacks increasing, threat actors are continually investing in more sophisticated ways to penetrate defenses. This has resulted in phishing and ransomware cited as two of the four leading concerns expressed by security-focused decision makers as noted by Osterman Research in the new white paper, ‘Best Practices for Dealing With Phishing and Ransomware.’ In this upcoming webinar, cybersecurity experts from Osterman Research and DomainTools will share a variety of threat intelligence best practices to keep organizations secure, including finding and using the attacker’s own data against them. Webinar attendees will earn one credit towards their Continuing Professional Education (CPE) through (ISC)2.
