Ransomware is pervasive, affecting organizations of all sizes — whether private or public sector, commercial or not-for-profit. The good news is that all organizations can make meaningful changes to help avoid being a target.

Our expert panel will explain the sources of ransomware, how victims are located and compromised, what the attack does on your network, and what your organization must do to respond to attacks.

The discussion will address questions such as: 

  • What can you do to proactively address the threat?
  • What are the important things to do and keep in mind from a technical perspective if you find ransomware on your network?
  • What are your legal obligations?
  • Is it acceptable to pay the ransom/to pursue the attackers?
  • Must the attack be reported to regulators and the affected persons?

Despite best efforts to prevent them, ransomware attacks happen. RSVP today to learn what you can do to ensure your business is protected.
