ICTTF Ransomware Uncovered

Course level : Short courses

We have partnered with ICTTF to bring you a training course to help you gain an understanding of the cyber risks related to Ransomware. 

In 2017, the NHS in the UK was hit with a Ransomware attack and the world dodged a bullet as the malware was stopped in its tracks. Since then, the threat level and the sophistication level of cybercriminals has escalated.  

Everyone is a potential target; victims have included oil pipelines, academia, financial institutions and even the entire health services. Ransomware is generally a symptom of poor cyber hygiene, so how do we deal with this challenge?
