Our Overcoming Ransomware Workshop / Walk-through
[Update: I’ve finished Jury Duty and moved a daughter to Kentucky and will be back at work Thursday. That means you can expect to hear from me about the workshop Thur or Fri. Craig. 2017/5/24]
I’m a survivor of an electronic worm, but you don’t need to be. You’ve heard my story and how I was a victim of a cyber attack more than 25 years ago. How I felt scared, used and exposed. You might have already been there, but either way, I’m committed to helping you to be as safe as possible in the future. If you know someone else, who could benefit from this free webinar series, have them send me a quick email (me at craigpeterson dot com) or fill out the form below, and I’ll get them signed up.
As promised I’m putting together a Workshop to show you exactly how to bring your Windows machines up-to-date, which anti-virus software you can install for free (or cheap for business) and a couple of other tricks that’ll take you to the point where you’re 98% safe. I’ve been working on step-by-step videos, guides and even have contacted some security software vendors to get everyone a good deal on some paid software. It’s been a lot of work, and I want to make sure it’s worth it, so…
We are in the midst of the biggest and quickest spreading ransomware attack ever. I’m more than a little disappointed by the spread, because it was entirely preventable — this time. Hopefully we’ve now got a wake-up call so that individuals and businesses realize they can’t just rely on the ‘patch and pray’ method of securing systems. One of my pet peeves for the last decade has been government agencies creating backdoors in the name of national security because they have once again been used to create mayhem worldwide.
With attacks from Ransomware on the rise, and it being the tool of choice for online criminals, we must be on high alert for security patches, phishing schemes, firewall alerts, and more.
I’m putting together a questionnaire that I’ll be sending out to everyone tomorrow. Keep an eye out on tomorrow’s email for a link.
Oh, and thanks for being a listener to my radio show.
