Main Presentation

How to Protect Yourself from Ransomware

In a world of Cryptocurrency and cyber criminals, Ransomware is running
rampant and infections can cost anywhere from several hundred to several
thousands of dollars.
Once a system is infected with Ransomware, all your files become
encrypted, making them unusable. Cyber criminals then demand you pay
a ransom to unlock your files!
If your system is not patched properly, you can become infected with
Ransomware simply by having your computer connected to the Internet.
Don't become a victim - learn simple steps to prevent getting
infected with Ransomware from Allegheny County Sheriff Jason Tarap.

Beginners Presentation:

There was not enough time for the  Beginner's Presentation.
