Industry Insight Protecting the business from ransomware

Since its discovery on 12 May 2017 the WannaCry ransomware attack continued to spread, impacting over 10,000 organisations and 200,000 individuals in over 150 countries, according to European authorities. It shut down work at 16 hospitals across the United Kingdom, as reported by The Guardian. However, while measures were taken to slow the spread of the malware, new variations surfaced.
In May 2017 the PETYA malware crippled many organisations in Europe and the US. The malicious software spread through large firms including the advertiser WPP, food company Mondelez, legal firm DLA Piper and Danish shipping and transport firm Maersk.
In light of these attacks:

  • What is ransomware?
  • How can it impact your business?
  • How can organisations and individuals protect themselves from such attacks?

Join us for this insightful discussion as we unpack practical solutions to better prepare and protect businesses from such cyberattacks.
