In 2018, a downturn in Ransomware was predicted. Instead, we saw a 118% growth from 2018 to 2019. These attacks are having devastating effects on schools, causing severe outages and disrupting education. Join CDW’s Security Architects at one of our two identical sessions as we take a look at current Ransomware trends and what schools can do to protect themselves from the latest threats. There will be an open roundtable discussion made up of your peers from districts in Pennsylvania and our team of experts to address common questions, myths, quick fixes, and more.
Learn what Ransomware is and how it affects schools; Understand the attack vectors taken advantage of by Ransomware; Learn what happens during a Ransomware attack; Understand best practices and proactive steps that schools can take to strengthen their security posture and protect their environment.
