Of all the emerging security challenges on the IT landscape, ransomware has proven to be the most difficult threat to overcome. This isn’t because the technical aspects are particularly advanced, but because the nature of the threat is based on the behavior of individual users. No matter how well a network is designed, or how advanced the cybersecurity or tracking systems are, ransomware can still sneak in, and the consequences have proven to be both expensive and embarrassing for customers and for service providers. In this podcast, Webroot’s Chief Technology Officer, Hal Lonas, will join Ryan Morris, contributing editor for Penton Technology, to discuss the details of the ransomware phenomenon and the specific, practical steps that service providers can take to protect their customers.
