Watch now: Fighting back

Your data is being held hostage; what do you do?

Businesses of all sizes in all industries can find themselves the targets of ransomware attacks. If it happens to your business how do you know when it’s ‘safe’ to act? Should you pay the ransom? How do you negotiate while also trying to stop the attack in progress? Can you ‘go after’ the attacker?

Jerry Bessette (former FBI negotiator), of Booz Allen Hamilton, joins Claire Holford and Simon Beasley, of our Dispute Resolution team, to answer these questions and break down the steps for getting out of a data hostage situation, if this happens to you.

In this session you will learn about:

  • How to combat a ransomware demand
  • What to do if you can’t identify the attacker
  • How to know if you should pay the ransom or not
  • How to avoid damaging your business reputation

This webinar is part of our Cyber Conference series.
