Ransomware: What Happens When the Tech Stops?

Thursday, November 11, 2021 09:30—09:50
Location: Historic Kassenhalle

Today, the nature of organisations is that they are fundamentally more reliant on technology than ever before. Hybrid ways of working have exploded the attack surface, and the pandemic has forced many businesses to quickly implement digital solutions in order to continue operating, meaning security has all-too-often become an afterthought.

Criminals are exploiting this changing landscape and are constantly scanning the internet for these open doors and easy opportunities. They have industrialised and are capable of prosecuting at scale using targeted campaigns.

Ransomware as a service (RaaS) is now a fully functioning business, with a highly developed criminal ecosystem offering malicious SaaS software, pay-as-you-go consumption, tech support and even revenue share models. Furthermore, they are all working together, sharing affiliates. If one gang drops, another one will take its place. It’s like a game of ‘Wack-a-mole’ and it’s a global problem that is not going away, especially as more businesses will continue to digitally transform in order to survive.

Protecting your business, all comes down to securing data properly. Know what you’re doing and understand your high-risk areas. Paying ransom will not solve the problem.

In this session, we will look at how this evolving threat landscape impacts us and how businesses can protect themselves and use their employees to build out their cyber maturity.
