Webinar Replay - Understanding Ransomware as a Business
Share |

Ransomware is a billion dollar business. While it is strange to think of hacker activity as a business, many hacker groups operate in the same manner as a business and treating them like a business can help organizations better protect themselves from ransomware. Treating the groups behind ransomware as a business means understanding how they operate, how they deliver their services, who they are targeting, what their pricing models look like, and learning their weaknesses. It also means understanding what steps your organization needs to take in order to protect itself from these groups. Essentially, in the same way that any organization collects intelligence on its competitors, the best way to protect against ransomware is to collect intelligence on the people behind the attack campaigns and the product they deliver (in this case, ransomware).

In this webinar, led by Allan Liska (Solutions Architect, Recorded Future) he will briefly cover the history of ransomware, will explain why there has been an explosion of ransomware attacks, and will describe how ransomware is typically delivered. He will also provide an overview of ways that organizations can better understand who is behind ransomware campaigns, what their delivery methods are, why all of this matters, and how organizations can protect themselves from ransomware.
