The Resurgence of Ransomware & Its Impact on Public Safety

If you follow the news, you may have heard of the major cyber threats that Public Safety faced in 2017:

August – Iberia Parish, LA – Ransomware attack

September - Butler County, KS – Ransomware attack

September – Ocean County, NJ – Data breach

October – Lafayette Parish, LA – Ransomware attack

November – Hennepin County, MN – DDoS attack

November – Camden County, MO – Ransomware attack

November – Williamson County, TN – Ransomware attack

December – Mecklenburg County, NC – Ransomware attack

According to recent news, ransomware attacks overall have fallen sharply in 2018; however, public safety doesn’t always follow the general trends. There is more at stake, and certain hacking techniques might be more effective against the more isolated public safety infrastructure.

We thought it was time to take a closer look at ransomware and the evolving trends of how cyber thugs try to impact your mission of providing life-saving services. As always, our discussion focuses on the public safety community that we uniquely support.

In this on demand webinar we discuss:
  • Ransomware attacks on public safety in 2018 – have they declined?
  • Are other cyber-attacks becoming more prevalent?
  • Can NG911 help, or will it be a new threat landscape - or both?
  • If ransomware is declining broadly, will it resurge? Do public safety trends follow general trends?
