Cybersecurity Exercise: Ransomware Attack Simulation



Through ransomware, cybercriminals extort organizations by encrypting and holding their data hostage until a ransom payment is made. This type of fraud has impacted a number of hospitals in recent years and can result in high costs, dramatic disruption to essential services, and negative press. During this interactive session, you will experience a ransomware attack as it hits and will navigate the many decisions that must be made. By participating in this session, you will gain a better understanding of how to prevent and be prepared for such an attack.
