Your network is infected with malware, the first step in a Ransomware attack. Your initial indicator of compromise is generally a message on a user's screen that your data has been encrypted and you must pay the bad actor to get a decryption key. 

Is there anything you do as an IT Director, Network Administrator, or Managed Service Provider to be proactive?

Join us for a creative, yet practical proactive step you can take. Attendees will learn how to create a honeypot which can be detected by the initial scans of the malware. Some attacks upon discovery of the honeypot are abandoned prior to encryption of your data. 

NOTE: Please bring a wiped Windows 10 Enterprise computer with you to this training, one that is NOT on your network.
