A look at the ransomware attack that caused gasoline shortages across the nation

The Colonial Pipeline Ransomware Attack is an historic cybersecurity incident. While it’s hardly the first time a large company has fallen to a ransomware attack, it is the first time that countless people felt the impact directly.

You may have felt the ripple effects from other attacks on big business, such as your personal information being compromised in the Equifax or Target breaches. But in a matter of days, the ransomware attack on Colonial directly led to people throughout the country not being able to fill up their gas tank.

For some, this is a wakeup call. Every institution is a target for cyber-attacks, and it is up us to not just protect ourselves, but also the third parties who are impacted by attacks on our systems.

For this webinar, we’ll take an in depth look at the Colonial Pipeline Attack, including:

  • Exactly what happened
  • How Colonial Pipeline and other third parties responded to the attack
  • How this incident could have been avoided
  • The potential long-term impact on security and compliance standards
  • What you can learn from the incident to better protect your business
  • Your Q&A

We're looking forward to sharing information with you and answering your questions. Watch the recording today!
