Topics: Recent polls show that about 50% of companies suffered a ransomware attack with significant consequences. This presentation aims to explain why ransomware (not only cryptolocker) is so effective in inducing users to their self-destruction. Many examples of real situations are shown and the social engineering role. In fact, this software is designed to circumvent human capabilities and defence mechanisms leveraging the most vulnerable parts of human nature. After a deep explanation of vulnerabilities exploited by ransomware the presentation is focused in giving techniques aimed to reduce threats, which are both technical (e.g. use of cryptography, security analysis tools) and awareness-based. The final part is a collection of practical tips and techniques, including how to effectively protect our PC and safely browse the web reducing personal data exposition to the minimum.
