Welcome to the free webinar on the cybersecurity career course now cybersecurity is the hot thing now you see cyber security in featured in movies or TV shows like CSI cyber mr. robot blackhat and even in the news with Ed Snowden WikiLeaks cases of ransomware Russian hackers a lot of hospital in recent years have fallen victim to an attack.
Known as ransomware this is an attack where the attacker sends some type of malware to an unsuspecting person and it basically locks up.
Your computer and has a clock that runs down and tells you that if you do not pay X amount of dollars your data is going to.
