Ransomware – the next generation of cyber threats explained

Date of event 10 November 2021

Time 14:00 - 15:30

Location Online

Gemserv in conjunction with Executive Leaders Network (ELN) are hosting an insightful roundtable to discuss “ransomware – the next generation of cyber threats explained”.

Ransomware attacks are costing the global economy £6trn annually. We’ve seen an evolution in ransomware tactics, especially where organisational vulnerabilities have been highlighted during the pandemic. The malicious groups sending these threats have broadened their capability to extort ransoms from their victims, by not only restricting access to data (via encryption or locking users out of the filesystem), but also exfiltrating the data and then threatening to release it. In addition, the cyber criminals are increasingly threatening to auction off the stolen data to other criminal groups, forcing the hand of the victims. This can have significant implications for your organisation’s operations and reputation.

In order to mitigate the likelihood and impact of a ransomware attack, it is essential that you have effective security procedures in place; combination of people-centric, process and technical controls. It is the combination of these three control areas that ensure a robust defence and resilience against ransomware attacks.

Award winning CISO, Andy Green and vCISO, Marc Avery will deep dive into the tools and solutions that you need to combat these threats. They will share lessons learned from recent ransomware attacks and provides you with insights on how to solve the privacy and security challenges that organisations face today.
