Ransomware is a serious threat – what CIRA is doing about it and how it helps me
With over 800,000 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.
Damages from ransomware attacks cost business over $5 billion in 2017 and it has grown to be the #1 threat facing Canadian organizations. 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 defense 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.
