Boardroom: CYBER DISASTER RECOVERY CHALLENGES FOR THE UK IN 2021 (25th May - Hosted on Zoom)

3:00 pm - 4:15 pm CYBER DISASTER RECOVERY CHALLENGES FOR THE UK IN 2021

Have global businesses become too comfortable with the fallback option of paying the ransom? What if the fail-safe of paying the ransom to recover patient data and bring systems back online is no longer an option and data is destroyed; and there is no hacker on the other end to restore access? Have we planned and practiced adequately for an alternative?
