Data Security and Ransomware Attacks – How It Impacts Employees and Operations

Quarles & Brady Seminar Linda C. Emery, Sean M. Scullen

Program Overview:

Almost every news cycle, there seems to be a new report of organizations harmed by ransomware attacks, phishing attacks or other cyber incidents. Ransom demands are also increasing. In this webinar, we discussed what happens when an organization experiences a ransomware or other data security incident and how the entire organization can work together to effectively respond and reduce the risk. We addressed the important roles of HR, IT and Accounting/Finance in avoiding and responding to these incidents, as well as the impact on and involvement of employees, whose assistance is critical in proactively reducing the risk of cyber incidents, reporting attempted incidents and helping respond during an incident.
