Public reports of ransomware are becoming more frequent:
- Another hospital loses the ability to operate
- People are locked out of their files, which are encrypted on their own hard drives. 

Using FireEye intelligence, expertise and technology, we go behind the headlines to examine new ransomware trends, from the development of new ransomware systems to mobile device-specific ransomware and ransomware as a service. We will share how we respond to these attacks and what you can do to improve your defenses.

Register today to learn what you can do to stop ransomware.
