Ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to an infected computer and demands that the user pay a ransom to get their files back. Many Michigan businesses have been affected by this type of cyber crime so it is imperative to know how to protect your business and what to do if you fall victim to this crime. Christian Kopacsi, Consumers Energy will lead this 3-hour seminar and members of the Michigan Cyber Civilian Corps will talk about the services the State of Michigan offers when a business falls victim to computer crimes.
