Ready for our next Course of the Month? Here's what's on tap for June.

Experts Exchange recently launched the Course of the Month program, where Premium and Team Accounts will have access to one of our high-quality courses as a part of their membership, for no additional cost. We are excited to announce that our next featured course focuses on ransomware, a relevant subject with the global WannaCry attack making headlines in recent weeks. 


How to Prepare for and Navigate a Ransomware Attack will educate you on the basics of ransomware, including what it is, how it works, and ways you can get infected with ransomware. This course also covers the basics of cryptography and how it affects ransomware, how to prevent attacks, what to do if you have been hit with ransomware, and tools you can use to combat attacks.


This course comes from Thomas Zucker-Scharff, an Experts Exchange member and highly engaged expert that has been working in the field since 1985.


Here’s how the program works:


  • Free course available to Premium Members, Team Accounts, and Qualified Experts only
  • Member must enroll in the course between June 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017 for free access*
  • Member will have access to the course for 30 days after enrollment
