Ransomware has been one of the top attack methods for cyber-criminals for several years. Used to target organizations in both the private and public sectors, ransomware has proven to be a resilient foe capable of causing significant damage to victims despite an ever-greater awareness of this particular threat.

From the devastation caused by the WannaCry attack of 2017, to the more recent attacks that shutdown cities and states across the US in 2019, ransomware has continued to not only wreak havoc across the globe but also shown its ability to adapt, evolve and even enjoy periods of renaissance just when it seemed like the threat was abating.

This session will explore the current state of the ransomware risk landscape, assess why ransomware continues to be such a resilient attack threat and outline what makes for an effective, modern ransomware defense strategy.

Key takeaways:

  • Why ransomware continues to be a damaging and effective attack vector
  • What does modern-day ransomware defense look like, and how to achieve it
  • What 2020 will have in store for ransomware
