“When Boris Calls” – David Keener
Chief Deputy, Lorain County Recorder’s Office
Imagine coming in to work, turning on your computer, and realizing that you don’t have access to any of your data. Then you find the note. The ransom note. What happens next? Do you have good, solid, tested backups? Do you have a proficient IT staff that can walk you through the process of paying and decryption? Can they recover your data from backups? Would you be ok starting from scratch? And what about the public we all serve? “When Boris Calls” is a case study of ransomware. A mix of humor, common sense, and the real-world struggle with crypto-currency and the anonymous internet. The goal is to raise awareness about security best practices and supporting those in information technology who support you .
A case study of an actual ransomware attack in a medium-sized business environment using information that ties all business environments and government sectors together.
1) To identify common terminology used in cyber security and ransomware attacks.
2) To inform the participant of common entry points for ransomware attackers.
3) To provide common sense solutions that create a more aware and secure end-user experience.
4) To allow for questions and answers to common IT security questions.
