CSA Executive Track: Ransomware Executive Panel
Ransomware Executive Panel: A Growing Threat and a Management Nightmare
Ransomware is a type of malware that locks, or encrypts, what is deemed to be the user’s most important data. Then, the cyber criminals hold this data hostage, demanding a ransom payment in order for the user to retrieve access to their files again.
Ransomware attacks continue to increase for two reasons; victims are paying ransoms and advances in technology are making malware attacks easier. Regardless of the type of ransomware, the overall concept remains consistent – extort the user by encrypting their most important data.
In this webinar, we will hear from industry leaders in a discussion about ransomware ranging from best preventative measures, incident preparedness, and incident management to business decisions (pay/not pay), legal ramifications, and what the future might hold.
