Ransomware is a serious threat – what CIRA is doing about it and how it helps me
With over 500,000 Canadian users of CIRA's new DNS Firewall service we have developed a unique, and local, perspective on the cyberthreat landscape that we will share with attendees.
With over $1 billion paid out in bitcoin to thieves in 2016, ransomware has grown to be the #1 threat facing Canadian organizations both big and small. Join an exclusive group of your peers at our free session on ransomware protection using CIRA’s new D-Zone DNS Firewall. During this session, we will delve into some of the data science and the network architecture that ensures maximum performance and reliability.
With a DNS firewall you add to your defence in depth strategies to provide a layer outside the network and outside traditional firewalls to improve blocking of common vectors like clickbait. Additionally, because malware often uses the DNS for command and control you help protect your network from problems brought in through BYOD and home workers.
Snacks will be provided with cocktails to follow.
