Ransomware continues to be one of the most significant cybersecurity threats facing businesses and the wider world today.

The global cost of ransomware attacks is expected to increase from $20bn in 2021 to $265bn by 2031 according to recent predictions made by Cybersecurity Ventures.

Organisations including Puma and Bridgestone have been subject to ransomware attacks since the start of 2022 and the threat continues affecting the business bottom line with costs in excess of £1 million for ransom demands or the loss of valuable data and/or downtime.

Ransomware awareness is not only about knowing the definition of ransomware but involves a greater understanding of what to look for and how to respond.

This short e-learning programme will ensure that your staff are up to speed.

With interactive learning activities, knowledge checks and key reminder messages, the programme covers the following sections:
