BCS IT Leaders Forum event.

4:30pm - Webinar begins
6:00pm - Webinar ends


IT has never been more important to business than it is today but it also introduces new threats. Ransomware is one such threat - its growing and it threatens the very existence of the business itself. We examine Ransomware from two perspectives: we consider the IT response and the law enforcement response.

Ransomware - The Survey

Back in May we carried out a survey asking how you would respond after a Ransomware attack on your business. David Miller, Chair of the BCS IT Leaders Forum, will introduce the event and reveal the results of this survey for the first time - and they will surprise you.

Ransomware - Law Enforcement Response

Ransomware is now a Tier 1 national security threat with attacks against business and the public sector increasing. DI Jonathan Naylor and his colleagues from his cyber-crime unit will tell us how the police are fighting back against rogue states and the criminally motivated to help keep your businesses safe. They can help you in these circumstances but they need your help to curb the perpetrators. Find out how.
