Title: Resisting Ransomware in the 2020s

Abstract:  The scourge of ransomware continues to grow – what is the effective defense? Join Richard Campbell to discuss how ransomware has evolved and what you can do to protect yourself and your organization. Expect the all-star hits of security-in-depth, multi-factor authentication, and antimalware strategies – but there’s more! Ransomware has many moving parts, and you only have to disrupt a few points to break the attack cycle. There are solutions!


Richard Campbell wrote his first line of code in 1977 and still isn’t over it. He’s had a bunch of jobs in computing, built a few companies along the way and these days does a little consulting, makes the podcasts .NET Rocks and RunAs Radio, is one of the folks behind the DevIntersection conferences as well as being chief cheerleader for the charity Humanitarian Toolbox.
