Ransomware Breakfast Briefing

Ransomware Breakfast Briefing


Date: Thursday 23rd June 2016
Time: 8:30am – 11:00am
Venue: The Soho Hotel, 4 Richmond Mews, London, W1D 3DH
Nearest Tube: Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus or Piccadilly Circus


Encryption-based ransomware remains a real threat to organisations, with boards now defining specific company policy should they fall victim.  Stringent or regular employee security training programmes and well-funded external defences and anti-viruses are no longer sufficient to protect against ransomware and crypto threat.

Cyberseer invites you to the June Breakfast Club in the private screening room at The Soho Hotel to listen to experts who will help you understand how ransomware can take a foothold within your organisation and explore how you can defend and control the impact of these attacks.

This briefing is suited to C-level executives, including CIO’s, CISO’s, Heads of Information Security, Security Architects and Cyber Security Managers interested in reviewing ransomware tactics and remediation steps.

Cyberseer is skilled in advanced threat detection supporting FTSE 100 companies. Our Analysts, in conjunction with advanced tool sets, discover and investigate malicious human driven attacks as well as unfolding malicious machine threats. At this event, we explore how ransomware attacks happen and what your organisation can do to combat this rising crypto-threat. We will look at a solution and service based approach to how organisations can detect and defend against CryptoLocker and other malicious threats.


Our goal is to provide a forum for security-focused leaders who can share, enlighten and stimulate so you meet your challenges head on.
