Ransomware attacks have been the go-to exploit for semi-skilled cybercriminals seeking to maximize their ROI due to the availability of more sophisticated encryption technology, the increase in the popularity of cryptocurrencies, the proliferation of Ransomware-as-a-Service services on the dark web, and the unexpected widening of the target pool due to WFH and BYOD patterns.

Prevention, detection, and response strategies to ensure business continuity and support attribution procedures
Webinar: 16:00-17:00 CET
Wednesday 30th June 2021
The availability of more advanced encryption technologies, the rise in the value of cryptocurrency, the explosion of Ransomware-as-a-Service offerings on the dark web, and the sudden expansion of the victim pool through WFH and BYOD trends, has made ransomware attacks the go-to exploit for semi-skilled cybercriminals looking to maximize their ROI.
In this 60-minute webinar, we explore the factors fuelling the explosion of ransomware activity in the power grid environment and examine the prevention, detection, and response strategies that must be employed to get ahead and stay ahead of the attackers. We consider how more reliable data backups can be created to support business continuity in the face of an attack, how incident response strategies must transform to better support the attribution process, and how the power grid community can work more closely together to bring cybercriminals to justice and deter future attacks.
