Every day there are headlines in the paper about Cyber-Attacks.  A recent headline read “Equifax breach sends shivers into Canada”.  This recent cyber-attack exposed the personal information of 143 million Americans plus an unspecified number of Canadians.  Attend this seminar to learn about liability exposures for private organizations in Canada.  A live Ransomware demonstration will show how easy it is to infect a business with Ransomware.  Network Test Labs will provide their predictions on what the future could hold concerning cyber-attacks.

Disclaimer:  The live Ransomware demonstration being conducted by Network Test Labs (NTL) is for educational purposes only.  What will be shown in this
presentation if used maliciously is HIGHLY ILLEGAL and can result in fines and/or jail time.  The goal of this presentation is to inform and show the audience
