About the course

Ransomware can have devastating consequences for any organisation, large or small. This course goes over what happens when an organisation is attacked by ransomware, and what everyone in the organisation can do to prevent it. As phishing emails are the most common way to get ransomware into organizational systems, this course will give your employees tips to identify when a phishing email lands in their inbox, and what they can do to verify it. All in all, this course gives context to how damaging some cyberattacks can be and why it is so important for employees to be alert.

Important things to consider:

  • Always be skeptical of emails with links or attachments

  • Think critically about who you are receiving the email from, as well as the context and timing

  • Contact the sender through other channels if you are suspicious of an email
