Session Abstract

A hacker found you. Your computers have ransomware. Your money is gone. Your reputation is destroyed. Your lax security made you an attractive and easy target. It was only a matter of time.

Unless you attend How Hacks Happen via Ransomware, presented by Mark Anthony Germanos. Mark is an ethical hacker. He goes into offices and audits their network security, or lack of security…he has seen a lot. He identifies the biggest vulnerabilities and works with you to remediate them. He is also a cybersecurity trainer who takes the most abstract concepts and presents them in a manner you can digest.

In How Hacks Happen via Ransomware, Mark presents the Lockheed Martin Cyber Kill Chain and shows how hackers follow this to rip off innocent victims, like you. The sooner you learn your attackers’ tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), the sooner you protect yourself and your business from today’s threats. Attend How Hacks Happen via Ransomware at CMIA Connect 2024 in Anaheim. The sooner the better. A hacker may already be attacking you. Learn to protect yourself, before it’s too late.
