Media Alert: Comodo and ESG to Present Webinar‚ ‘From Cyberwar to Cybercrime - the Proliferation of Ransomware’

SANTA CLARA‚ Calif.&mdash Oct. 11‚ 2016Comodo‚ a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions‚ today announced that it will team with Jon Oltsik‚ senior principal analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)‚ for a webinar focused on protecting enterprises from sophisticated ransomware attacks.

As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month‚ Oltsik will join Comodo Senior Research Scientist and NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Centre of Excellence Ambassador Kenneth Geers‚ as they explore how cyberwarfare techniques like ransomware‚ once only available to nation states‚ are now being used to harm enterprises’ productivity‚ collect their data and harvest their money.

Earlier this year‚ the FBI issued a formal warning that ransomware incidents are on the rise‚ targeting hospitals‚ school districts‚ government entities‚ law enforcement agencies and businesses of all sizes.

Leo Versola‚ senior director of solution architecture at Comodo‚ will offer prevention advice to these organizations‚ breaking down how a True Default Deny security stance with Comodo's Advanced Endpoint Protection can prevent infections from happening in the first place–instead of just remediating the effects. Participants can then view a live demonstration and ask questions.
