Extinction Level Attacks: Surviving Ransomware and Nation States

Presented by

Andy Jones, Distinguished Analyst, ISF

About this talk

Extinction level attacks present an almost insurmountable challenge as the digital world becomes weaponised. They are difficult to predict and very likely to overcome technical preventative controls. The devastation that they can cause is profound and business threatening. Accepting the reality of extinction level attacks and planning for survival represents a cost-effective and pragmatic approach. On Wednesday 12th May, 13:00 BST, Andy Jones, Distinguished Analyst at the ISF will be discussing his findings from this most recent research report, Extinction Level Attacks: A survival guide, in three key stages: • Prepare – tasks to complete before an attack, to ensure that the organisation is better prepared to respond to the attack when it happens. • Respond – tasks to execute during an attack, in order to lessen its impact and to speed the recovery. • Resume – tasks that are instrumental in returning to a stable and secure organisational state as quickly as possible.
