Join CLDA for a live webinar on Wednesday, November 3 at 1:00 pm EDT to learn how to identify and defend against cybersecurity attacks from industry leaders.
Transportation & logistics presents a tempting target to ransomware gangsters for several reasons. One, the effects of a successful ransomware attack are felt well outside the business itself, disrupting the supply chains of hundreds to potentially thousands of other businesses, ratcheting up the pressure to quickly pay and restore service. Two, the highly interconnected nature of the business (which intersects at various points with smaller forwarders as well as suppliers, producers and retailers) presents multiple points of malware infiltration. If they find a weak link, ransomware can spread quickly along the chain of systems. Three, relatively low margins have made it difficult to justify investments in cybersecurity infrastructure in the absence of a debilitating attack.
Registration is open to the public, but you must register in advance.
