This session will explore what to consider and the steps to follow after a ransomware attack and will include a case workshop where participants will face a ransomware scenario.

In part one of the event, the speakers will cover the following:

  • Anatomy of ransomware
  • Incident response
  • Engagement with threat actor
  • Regulation
  • Data Subject claims

In part two of the event, we will split into breakout rooms. Groups will be given the ransom note, and will be asked to discuss how they would proceed based on the topics above e.g engagement with the threat actor, as well as further considerations. The questions will be a mix of closed and open ended to encourage engagement through the chat feature as well as discussion.

We will come back together so each group can give feedback and discuss the different approaches/outcomes.
