NECP Webinar: Responding to the Ransomware Threat for Emergency Communications


Ransomware attacks hit a new target every 14 seconds: shutting down digital operations, information theft and exploitation of businesses, critical services and individuals. In recent years, ransomware incidents have become increasingly common among state, local, tribal and territorial government entities and against national critical infrastructures to include emergency communications. Disruptions to public safety operations have a direct and negative impact on the health and safety of the communities they serve. Despite this increasingly frequent threat, the SAFECOM national survey (SNS) found that nearly half of public safety organizations do not plan for cybersecurity, making them more vulnerable to attack.

This webinar highlights the risk that ransomware attacks pose to communications and emergency actions within the National emergency communication plan (NECP) that organizations can use to protect, respond to, and recover from this threat. Additionally, participants will hear a real-life example of a ransomware attack and the lessons learned from that experience.

Join the webinar to learn more about:

• What is ransomware and how to protect emergency communication systems

• What to do if a critical system is attacked by ransomware

• Resources and actions to prepare for and recover from ransomware attacks
