A Review of the Ransomware Threat Landscape

Posted on in Presentations

From 2019 to 2020, cybercriminals got greedier and richer with ransomware. The average ransom payment nearly tripled (from $115,123 to $312,493), and the highest ransom payment (from $5 million to $10 million) and demand (from $15 million to $30 million) each doubled. This session discusses how the private and public sectors can work together to curtail ransomware. The session was pre-recorded on March 19 and as such does not touch on the Colonial Pipeline ransomware incident.
