Topic: Ransomware Negotiator – Ask Me Anything

Time: On-Demand

According to a former senior White House official, 2020 was the year that ransomware went from being a nuisance to a full-scale national security threat and a “scourge.” The frequency of ransomware attacks has increased dramatically over the past year, with 93% more carried out in the first half of 2021 than the same period last year. Ransom payments topped over $400 million last year and is on pace for another record breaking year in 2021. Although those payments may seem jaw-dropping its nothing compared to the damage that a ransomware attack can cause on enterprises and critical infrastructure such as the attack on Colonial Pipeline.
