Webinar recording: Ransomware 2.0 – cyber criminals raise the stakes again

The volume and impact of cyber attacks on UK organisations remain alarmingly high, and in particular, many small and medium-sized companies are still falling victim to ransomware, with disastrous effects on their organisation. For trade associations and membership bodies who hold a vast amount of member data, they have to be particularly vigilant.

In our webinar recording our team of cyber experts demonstrate some of the most common ways a cyber attacker could infect your organisation with ransomware. They also talk through what you can do as a business to protect yourselves against this rise in cyber criminality, and to avoid becoming a victim of double-extortion ransomware.


Some very useful resources and information:

Interview with a ransomware operator
UK NCSC Cyber Security Board Toolkit

Adopting a framework – you don’t have to figure this out from scratch:

Basic cyber hygiene – Cyber Essentials / Cyber Essentials Plus
More advanced – UK NCSC 10 Steps to Cyber Security
As you mature over time, look towards CIS Top 20, NIST Cyber Framework or ISO27001
