Wisconsin Alumni | Cybersecurity & Ransomware

June 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In just the past month, there have been multiple high-profile ransomware attacks affecting U.S. supply chains, from fuel pipelines to meat processing facilities. Who carries out cyberattacks like these — and why? What security risks should individuals and organizations be aware of? How might the United States and other nations work together to reduce these risks? Why is it important for organizations to continue to invest in digital transformation amid the rise of cybersecurity threats? What can we all do to keep ourselves safe?
Join fellow UW alumni and friends online for a livestream and Q & A with a panel of experts who will discuss modern cybersecurity issues and solutions. The talk will be moderated by Mike Knetter, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association.
