Beers with Engineers: Ransomware - Perceptions vs. Reality (Grand Rapids)

When: February 21, 2019 3:15PM – 5:30PM

Location: Grand Rapids Brewing Co. 1 Ionia SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Have you ever thought, "our endpoint protection platform will protect against ransomware and all other threats?" or "in the event of a malicious attack, everything will be okay if I have a backup of my data?"

For the first portion of this event, our panel of senior data center and security engineers will:

  • Demonstrate a real-time ransomware attack before your eyes
  • Discuss preparedness and processes that should be put in place to recover from an attack
  • Answer questions related to building resilient infrastructure to design against malicious attacks
  • Brainstorm and collaborate with attendees on how to effectively manage fear vs. risk
  • Network and share craft beer with the group as we socialize and talk all things data center technologies

*Snacks and beverages will be provided.
