K-12 Education Leaders’ Guide to Ransomware: Prevention, Response, and Recovery
Ransomware is a type of malware. It restricts access to the computer system that it infects or the data that it stores (often using encryption techniques), and demands a ransom be paid to the creator(s) of the malware.
The K-12 Education Leaders’ Guide to Ransomware: Prevention, Response, and Recovery Webinar, hosted by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), focuses on the steps K-12 schools can take to prevent (before), respond to (during), and recover from (after) ransomware attacks, as well as free services that administrators can utilize to protect their schools.
CISA is the Nation’s risk advisor, working with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborating to build more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future.
NCSA encourage a culture of cybersecurity. They build strong public/private partnership to create and implement broad-reaching education and awareness efforts to empower users at home, work, and school.
