Ransomware is a type of malicious attack where attackers encrypt an organization’s data and demand payment to restore access. It disrupts or halts an organization’s operations and poses a dilemma for management: pay the ransom and hope that the attackers keep their word about restoring access and not disclosing data, or do not pay the ransom and restore operations themselves. The methods used to gain access to an organization’s information and systems are common to cyberattacks more broadly, but they are aimed at forcing a ransom to bepaid.
Organizations must be able to quickly recover from a Ransomware attack and trust that any recovered data is accurate, complete, and free of malware. Fortunately, organizations can implement the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to prepare for and reduce the potential for successful ransomware attacks. Attend this webinar to learn how to go about this, including how to:
- Gauge your organization's level of readiness to mitigate ransomware threats
- Identify security objectives from the NIST Cybersecurity Framework that support preventing, responding to, and recovering from ransomware events
- Understand how to manage data integrity risks and implement the appropriate safeguards to pretect critical data, systems, and devices from ransomware
- Prepare for and respond to any ransomware attacks that succeed
Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS. Whilst there he was one of the first people to be elected to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors where he was always keen to try and promote the differences in threat between Europe and UK, and the US. Since that election he hasn't moved far from the PCI domain. In 2010 he moved to Visa Europe and became the Vice President Payment System Risk with responsibilities for designing and operating the Visa Europe PCI compliance strategy for European merchants and service providers. He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe, and for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. In 2015 he went independent and currently provides cyber security risk consultancy services to a wide range of public and private companies. Colin has presented on Information Security at major events around the world, and has published a number of papers on security.
