[SecureWorld] Ransomware: Breaking the Criminal Business Model

Presented by

Scott Simkin, Palo Alto Cybersecurity Team

About this talk

Ransomware isn’t a malware problem, but a criminal business model. Cyber attackers have perfected the key components of a ransomware attack, earning significant revenue from their malicious activity. Impacted organizations may face significant monetary loss in order to free their data, as well as operational impacts from loss of critical systems. The standard answer to ransomware infections has been to pay up or give up, but there are better approaches that can prevent this threat before it gets into your organization. This session will share the latest ransomware research by Unit 42, the Palo Alto Networks threat research team, as well as how to architect your security posture to prevent this critical threat.
