Recent ransomware attacks against the HSE and the Department of Health have shown how devastating the effects of a major cybersecurity incident can be. Normal operations are disrupted for days or weeks, with a heavy financial cost.
And the problem is getting worse; the Garda National Cybercrime Bureau has reported a significant increase in the number of ransomware attacks in 2021. Globally, research from Check Point found ransomware attacks are up 93% on last year.
The urgent question for boards and management is this: could your organisation withstand a similar attack? In this free one-hour webinar as part of SureSkills’ ‘Be Tomorrow Ready’ Webinar Series, we’ll help you answer that question.
On the 22nd of September, SureSkills CTO Kevin Reid will be joined by Stephen Bowes, Global Practice Director for Data Management and Security Technologies at BSI , to discuss how to develop a strong practice to mitigate the threat and ensure your organisation can act effectively in the face of an attack. By attending, you’ll learn about:
• How a ransomware attack happens
• Steps you can take to mitigate the risk
• Ways to reduce the impact of an attack
Join for what promises to be an informative and practical discussion.
