Ransomware groups negotiation tactics: what you need to know

Presented by

Marc Rivero, senior security researcher, Global Research and Analysis Team, Kaspersky

About this talk

Cybercriminals tend to be secretive and act without disclosing their identity. However, when it comes to ransomware negotiations, the victim and the attacker have to “meet” face-to-face. Moreover, by the time the two sides meet to discuss the price, the attackers have already gained control of a company’s data or network – that puts the victim in a weak position. What does it like to negotiate with someone who is trying hard to get a ransom whilst remaining in the dark? What can you expect from such negotiations? In this webcast, Marc Rivero, senior security researcher, GReAT at Kaspersky will observe various tactics used by ransomware groups, explain how the companies are trying to negotiate with these cybercriminals, and what outcome such negotiations may have. In this webinar, you will learn: - What Ransomware as a service (RaaS) model is - What a data leak portal in RaaS terms is - About ransomware negotiations: stages, means of communication - What to do if you have been reached by a ransomware group - Q&A session
