The HICP: Five Threats Weekly Series hosted by the 405(d) Initiative presents the second threat in a series of five—Ransomware Attacks. Ransomware, as defined in the HICP Publication and the HHS Ransomware Fact Sheet is a type of malware (malicious software) distinct from other malware; its defining characteristic is that it attempts to deny access to a user’s data, usually by encrypting the data with a key known only to the hacker who deployed the malware, until a ransom is paid. Ransomware threats may incorporate tactics or techniques that are the same as or identical to other threats. For example, E-mail Phishing Attacks, the first of the five threats identified in the HICP publication may lead to the installation of ransomware.

The intent of this series is to provide continued education leveraging the recently released publication. This 90-minute presentation will allow the community to dive deeper into this threat individually and corresponding mitigation practices.
