In this Tech Talk, Alice Perez talks about crypto-ransomware: what it is, the encryption algorithms that make it possible, and how it is defeated. You'll deep dive into the basic math behind symmetric encryption and asymmetric encryption, and learn how these ciphers are used to encrypt files. With that foundation, you'll learn some of the implementation mistakes that make stopping crypto-ransomware attacks possible.
