itrainsec and Women4Cyber Foundation have the same mission to support the participation of women in the field of cybersecurity. Realizing this, both organisations joined forces within Women4Cyber Academy, an online platform providing access to women (and everyone interested) to top cybersecurity education and trainings. itrainsec offers its top-rate course “Ransomware: Survival Guide” to the Spanish-speaking audience to empower and equip everyone with the knowledge and skills needed to fight against ransomware.
Cybersecurity education is essential to understand the latest threats and how to avoid them. By working together, itrainsec and Women4Cyber Academy are able to provide comprehensive education to a larger audience. Ransomware prevention measures should form part of any organization's overall cybersecurity strategy. The key is to be well-informed and proactive to ensure that you have all security controls in place to protect your data and systems. The “Ransomware: Survival Guide” course provided by itrainsec gives basic knowledge about how ransomware works, what crimeware groups stand behind it, what tactics they use, and what kind of advanced prevention measures students can adopt.
“It is very important to support women’s careers nowadays, especially in cybersecurity. This can be achieved in many ways but first of all by providing proper educational opportunities to women in the field. I hope that itrainsec collaboration with Women4Cyber Foundation will move this intention forward and together we will be able to ensure the future of cybersecurity,” said Dasha Díaz, CEO and founder of itrainsec.
The Women4Cyber Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded in 2019 aimed at promoting, encouraging, and supporting the participation of women in the field of cybersecurity. Its mission is to develop and grow a cybersecurity community through networking, awareness, education, and training. To do that, the Foundation works to help raise the voices of women through social media and events, enhance female participation in cyber education, promote Role Models and tailored training programmes for entry, up-skilling or re-skilling in cybersecurity.
Ransomware continues to be one of the biggest problems for businesses, and it doesn't look like it's going to change any time soon. An IDC survey shows that a third of companies globally have been affected by these types of attacks. At the same time, Gartner points out that 95% of them could have been prevented. We prepare companies and individuals to understand and prevent this devastating threat that is constantly growing.
