CISA is proud to offer the cybersecurity awareness webinar, Defend Against Ransomware Attacks (IR109), on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, from 11 a.m. to noon EDT.  We are excited to share this information with stakeholders across the federal enterprise and nationally.

This webinar is intended for a non-technical audience and beginning incident responders.

Ransomware attacks hit a new target every 14 seconds—shutting down digital operations, stealing information and exploiting businesses, essential services, and individuals alike. This one-hour webinar provides essential knowledge and reviews real-life examples of these attacks to help you and your organization to mitigate and respond to the ever-evolving threat of ransomware.
