INFORMATION
Training Overview

How employee information can be held hostage by a ransomware attack. Learn how to mitigate ransomware attacks and protect HR data.

Ransomware attacks are very real and becoming more prevalent. Hackers often hone in on confidential human resources data, targeting personnel files that include:

  • Social security numbers
  • Driver license details
  • Financial account information
  • Vast troves of other personal employee information

In a ransomware scenario, the attacker could block your access to the files or, even worse, threaten to exploit or expose the confidential personnel details if you do not pay a large sum of money in cryptocurrency to the anonymous perpetrator.
