Ransomware Trend: Double-Extortion Attacks

Presented by

Poul Frederiksen, Syya Yasotornrat

About this talk

In this ransomware battleground, we are looking into double-extortion attacks. What are they? And how do they get triggered? Hackers first extract large amounts of sensitive data prior to encrypting a victim’s databases. Then they threaten to publish the data unless the victim pays ransom demands. This puts extra pressure on organizations to pay up. With these bigger attacks coming in 2021, the adversary has targeted the organization or the government department. How do you defend against this type of attack? Join this podcast with Syya and our elite cybersecurity guest to spot the IOCs and know-how Zero Trust Isolation can help in your defense.
