Retail Threat Landscape: Ransomware is on the Rise

Presented by

Scott Jarkoff, Director, Strategic Threat Advisory Group, APJ & EMEA

About this talk

The huge amount of financial transactions generated by retail organisations poses an attractive target for threat adversaries. While the predominant threat to the retail industry has traditionally been from criminal adversaries leveraging malware designed to compromise Point-of-Sale (PoS) terminals, there has been a marked increase in major ransomware attacks affecting retailers. In this session, we will explore the adversaries targeting retail, their motivation, and dive deep into the tradecraft they wield during their operations. Join Scott Jarkoff, CrowdStrike’s Director, Strategic Threat Advisory Group for APJ & EMEA, as he discusses the e-crime attacks targeting retailers around the world, and the shift of focus from PoS to ransomware.
