Ransomware seems to be the talk of the town. High profile targets such as the
Colonial Pipeline and Kia Motors seem to make the news just about every month.
Given that such large companies, with equally large pools of resources, are
falling victim… just how are cities and local governments managing? In this
talk we will explore just how public sector is holding up against the
ever-growing threat of ransomware by dissecting some attacks I have responded
to in my years of working in cybersecurity for local government and exactly how
local governments are responding (or failing to respond) to such attacks.
