Don’t be held Ransom:  Learn defense measures against Ransomware.  It can happen to you.  
Ransomware is malware that is designed to cripple computer systems by encrypting all data and files until a ransom is paid.  Early malware variants could encrypt only one device at a time, but modern variants such as Ryuk have shown the ability to cripple entire network, including back-up systems which makes modern ransomware attacks a true business interruption event.

This session will cover the basics of how this malware is spread and how it behaves once a system is affected.  We will then cover sound defensive measures designed to prevent ransomware, how to detect potential indicators of compromise, and how to recover in the event your systems is attacked.

Naming, Blaming, Claiming Prejudice and Discrimination in Counter-Terrorism
Ty and Sean have a great discussion planned. We will discuss a few major elements, principally the causes/effects of prejudice and discrimination, especially in the post-9/11 era. We will spend a great deal of time  focusing on community engagement strategies known to work and the many success stories out there.
