Free Webinar – What is Cryptojacking and How Can I Protect Myself?
As part of the BC Aware campaign, we are pleased to present this free webinar on yet another new cyber threat. Driven by recent increases in cryptocurrency values, Cryptojacking is poised to be the center of conversation in 2018. It’s one of the latest innovations in hacking in which a victim’s computer is enlisted to mine cryptocurrency. Unlike ransomware, this attack steals processor cycles in an attempt to mine Monero and other currencies, typically without the user’s knowledge or consent.
Join us on this timely 1-hour webinar where we will discuss –
- A quick overview of cryptocurrencies.
- A walk-through of a typical attack.
- The economics of the attackers.
- Possible mitigation strategies to keep you and your organization safe.
With miners trying to take advantage of the rising cryptocurrency industry, join us on this Global Knowledge webinar as we investigate this cyber-crime and learn how you can protect yourself and your organization.
