The news seems to be filled with stories of ransomware locking out entire departments from their computers, DDoS attacks shutting down websites, and data dumps containing passwords or other sensitive information. Trying to understand these attacks can seem overwhelming, almost like learning a foreign language, but it doesn’t have to.
This presentation by Stacey Wright, Senior Intel Program Manager, at the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) will explain the base concepts behind some of the most common cyber incidents affecting state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments. She’ll cover a couple of types of malware, including ransomware and financial Trojans, as well as botnets, SQLi, and DDoS attacks. As she explains what each of these terms mean and the damage they can cause your department, she’ll also explain how the best recommendations help to prevent or mitigate the attacks.
If you’ve ever wanted to know more about cybercrime and defenses, but didn’t want ask or were confused by a highly technical explanation, this is the right webinar for you.
