The Yorkshire and Humber Regional Cyber Crime team and our CiSP champion AQL are delighted to invite you to a seminar focusing on ransomware. The cost to business has increased year upon year as the attacks become more widespread.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software which takes control of its victims' device and encrypts the data making it unobtainable. The cyber criminal then demands a sum of money (often in the digital currency bitcoin) in exchange for returning their sensitive data.

Some businesses are now treating ransomware as an inevitable cost of doing business. Unfortunately, this ideology is what allows cyber criminals to sustain their living and fund illciit criminal activities.

The seminar seeks to empower businesses to protect themselves from ransomeware and upskill their knowledge on managing this type of attack.
