Making the complicated simple: Doctor Web training course on avoiding encryption ransomware

August 21, 2015

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web is pleased to offer users its new training course DWCERT-070-6 Protection from encryption ransomware for Windows desktops and servers. As the title shows, the purpose of this course is to arm users with knowledge about Trojan.Encoder programs and the measures that can be taken to prevent systems from becoming infected with programs of this kind.

Encryption ransomware is a pressing issue for users. It’s enough to look through Doctor Web's monthly reviews to see that the number of decryption requests submitted to our anti-virus laboratory remains high. Meanwhile, we’re doing our utmost to provide users with thorough information about this urgent threat, and this course is one more important way we are helping our users strengthen their defences.

This course contains detailed information and simple instructions on how to configure the Dr.Web components that are responsible for preventing Trojans from encrypting user files. The materials also contain detailed information about the data loss prevention feature that is available in Dr.Web Security Space.

Step-by-step instructions accompanied by screenshots will help the reader avoid the risks associated with encryption ransomware.

Stay informed about encryption ransomware!
