About this talk

Ransomware is a type of malicious attack where attackers encrypt an organization’s data and demand payment to restore access. It disrupts or halts an organization’s operations and poses a dilemma for management: pay the ransom and hope that the attackers keep their word about restoring access and not disclosing data, or do not pay the ransom and restore operations themselves. The methods used to gain access to an organization’s information and systems are common to cyberattacks more broadly, but they are aimed at forcing a ransom to bepaid. Organizations must be able to quickly recover from a Ransomware attack and trust that any recovered data is accurate, complete, and free of malware. Fortunately, organizations can implement the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to prepare for and reduce the potential for successful ransomware attacks. Attend this webinar to learn how to go about this, including how to: - Gauge your organization's level of readiness to mitigate ransomware threats - Identify security objectives from the NIST Cybersecurity Framework that support preventing, responding to, and recovering from ransomware events - Understand how to manage data integrity risks and implement the appropriate safeguards to pretect critical data, systems, and devices from ransomware - Prepare for and respond to any ransomware attacks that succeed
