Over the past year, a number of companies have been impacted by a Ransomware attack, in which an organisation’s hard drives are encrypted and a financial demand – sometimes per-machine – is requested for the key.
Despite the publicity around these attacks, many organisations remain in blissful ignorance of the financial impact Ransomware can have.
But we’re hoping to fix that with an education-first live broadcast that will see us take a soup-to-nuts view of Ransomware.
