 Our Review

Ransomware continues to be dangerous! While many other forms of malware and cryptoware tools have existed before, ransomware has some unique components that makes it different from other malware. Ransomware utilizes unbreakable encryption, which makes decrypting affected files impossible or nearly impossible. The attacker then demands a ransom from the victim to restore access to the data upon payment. Users are shown instructions for how to pay a fee to get the decryption key. For those with an interest in Ransomware – which frankly ought to be every Cybersecurity Professional, would derive significant value from this event and we’d highly encourage you to attend.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, May 7th 2021, or created by us.

Ransomware has evolved from an economic nuisance to a national security threat. As a result, it has become an urgent problem that we must address. Under the aegis of the Institute for Science & Technology, a broad coalition of volunteer experts from industry, government, law enforcement, nonprofits, cybersecurity insurers, and international organizations came together to develop a strategic framework for a systemic, global approach to mitigating the ransomware problem. In this webinar, we will discuss the Task Force’s framework for combatting ransomware.

Michael Daniel, President & CEO @ Cyber Threat Alliance, will talk with Michael Phillips, Chief Claims Officer @ Resilience, Megan Stifel, Executive Director, Americas, @ Global Cyber Alliance, Philip Reiner, CEO @ Institute for Security and Technology, Retired U.S. Army Major General John Davis, Vice President, Public Sector @ Palo Alto Networks to explore this pressing issue.
