This Week On Dark Reading: Event Calendar

Ransomware remediation and recovery this week, with clouds on the horizon.

THIS WEEK: 

Tomorrow -- Tuesday, March 28 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time: Ransomware Remediation & Recovery, with John Pironti, president of IP Architects, and Aimee Simpson, solution marketing manager of Code 42.

You’ve been hit by ransomware – and hit hard. Your organization has decided it won’t give in to the attackers’ demands for a ransom. Now what? Your business continuity planning may not have prepared you for a ransomware outbreak. How good are your backups? How accessible are your remote workers? Can you reimage machines or restore files? Can you restore your organization’s lost revenue or damaged reputation? The challenges are many, but with the right preparations, information security professionals can lead recovery efforts with confidence and remediate ransomware attacks effectively.

COMING SOON:

  • Tuesday, April 11, 1 p.m. ET: Cloud Security: Myths and Reality, Rich Mogul, CEO and analyst, Securosis, and Gene Stevens, Co-founder and CTO, ProtectWise
  • Wednesday, April 19, 1 p.m. ET: How Online Attackers Find Out About Your Organization, Michele Fincher, COO and chief influencing agent, Social-Engineer LLC, Chris Hadnagy, CEO, founder and chief human hacker, Social-Engineer LLC, and Bob Adams, cyber security strategist, Mimecast

DOWN THE ROAD:

May 15-19: Interop ITX Conference, Las Vegas, MGM Grand Hotel. Online events are great, but nothing beats face time. 

Planning to hit Tuesday's webinar, but still want more advice on ransomware? You'll want to hit "Ransomware: How To Stop It In Its Tracks, and Respond When You Can't," with Eduardo Cabrera, chief cybersecurity officer of Trend Micro. 

Want to follow up that "how attackers find out about your organization" webinar with more advice about preventing them from using that info? Then don't miss "Defeating Social Engineering, BECs & Phishing," with Bishop Fox's Rob Ragan and Alex DeFreese. 

Trying to deal with the security skills shortage, and don't have time to wait for the next generation of infosec pros to graduate from university programs that don't even exist yet? Then take a seat in Surviving the Security Skills Shortage, moderated by Dark Reading's own executive editor Kelly Jackson-Higgins, with a panel of security executives from Coca-Cola, Ford, and Microsoft.  

Check out all the sessions in the Interop Security Track. And don't forget about the two-day Dark Reading Cybersecurity Summit -- a great "what you need to know now" refresher for the overworked infosec pro or security crash course for the IT generalists in your life. The agenda has just been released!
