A hospital is forced to divert patients. A school cancels classes. A city is unable to access local residents’ utility accounts… Ransomware can cause all sorts of disruption. Just how severe may depend on what you do both before and after a ransomware actor strikes.

This eSummit will lay out the hard ransomware questions that organizations must ask themselves: Are they doing everything they can to ensure operational continuity? Have they securely encrypted their data and prepared backups? Have they run drills for ransomware scenarios? Do they have the resources in place to properly respond to and recover from a full-scale incident? And is there a playbook for all the stakeholders involved in the response process?

The answers to these questions may determine how well you come out the other side of an attempted attack.

Topics include:

• The latest exclusive research on ransomware from the CyberRisk Alliance

• Before the attack: Ransomware prevention, responsible data stewardship and simulated attack exercises

• During the attack: Detection & response best practices, and executing your playbook

• After the attack: Mitigating the pain of recovery and handling the aftermath
