Description: It seems not a day passes lately where the latest ransomware attack doesn’t dominate headlines. It’s not just the media suddenly taking an interest – ransomware attacks have increased in frequency in the last few months, with threat actors ramping up their tactics and increasing their demands. This presentation will provide a comprehensive update on the latest attacks, how to negotiate with a threat actor, legal risks and implications of paying a ransom, and how companies can prepare.
