At 1:30pm today, May 5th, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is hosting a ransomware webinar. They will provide specific guidance and resources for what small businesses can do to protect themselves better

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's goal for this webinar is that attendees leave the one-hour session with a sense of where they can find voluntary, free resources - including CISA’s Ransomware Guide - to protect their businesses from ransomware. This is about turning strategy into business action plans for risk mitigation and incident response.


The Department of Homeland Security's Secretary Mayorkas will discuss why ransomware is one of his top priorities and the focus for his first sprint, why ransomware is a national security priority, and why it is an issue for small businesses. According to a recent survey, 60% of small businesses do not believe that they will be a ransomware victim. This statistic should be concerning, since ransomware can pose an existential threat to small businesses. 

 

The second part of the program will focus on business resilience and include a panel of experts from CISA, the U.S. Secret Service and industry. The panel will discuss what market and industry risk-transfer resources are available to businesses.
