An increased amount of Australian organisations and individuals are targets of ransomware attacks.
Especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of attacks have accelerated significantly, with cyber criminals becoming more innovative in their approaches to ransomware attacks.

In collaboration with the RMIT Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation (CCSRI), the RMIT College of Business and Law (CoBL) has invited a number of expert panellists to discuss the question -
How can you protect yourself, and mitigate damage if you are the target of a ransomware attack?
