About the Event

From Series 3 Episode 5 the ‘Technical Difficulties’ storyline saw Scarlet magazine experience an cyber attack, with the hackers asking for a ransom to get their data back.

A leak could jeopardise the confidentiality that 26-year old Jane promised an important source. Richard thinks they should pay the ransom. Scarlet magazine is in meltdown-mode.

Join Cyber Skills EPE Manager Aoife Long in discussion with International Cybersecurity expert… as they do a deep dive on the storyline. How realistic was it? Why did the hackers want bitcoin? Do companies normally pay the ransom?
