This webinar will take place virtually on Zoom.

 Session Length:
90 minutes

Recent geopolitical events have only accelerated the incidence of “ransomware” cyberattacks which have become common in recent years.  Organizations around the world and across a broad spectrum of industries have been hit with ransomware attacks during which computer hackers break into an organization’s computer network, steal large amounts of data, and encrypt all data files to disable legitimate access. The intrusion is then followed by a ransom demand to extort money (usually in the form of cryptocurrency) from the organization both to regain access to their own data files and to avoid public disclosure of any sensitive confidential information in the stolen files.
