Join us for another exciting IGFOA webinar brought to you by the Professional Education Committee!
This session will cover how ransomware is evolving and why organizations must take immediate steps to protect themselves from this threat. Implementing effective cybersecurity is not necessarily easy, but if you follow a roadmap, you can more effectively protect your organization and cover a majority of the threat landscape using documented approaches to cybersecurity. There are many frameworks out there, and each has their uses, but there are common themes between them that every organization should work to adopt and make part of their security efforts.
Learning Objectives: Participants completing this session will be able to:
1. Describe ransomware and its impact on organizations, including how it is evolving.
2. Name at least five things that your organization can begin working on tomorrow to improve cybersecurity.
3. Recognize some of the common cybersecurity frameworks and regulations governing cybersecurity and IT compliance.
