ON DEMAND: The Rise of Ransomware: Causes, Lessons Learned, and Implications
Credit: 0 Credit Hours
2022 is expected to see a dramatic increase in ransomware attacks. Most, if not all, of today’s fintech businesses are turning to technology to improve the productivity of their business processes. While such an undertaking provides opportunities to increase the bottom line, ransomware attackers have evolved to become the No. 1 cyber threat to companies today. Moreover, cryptocurrencies have been used to accomplish these ransomware attacks, raising questions as to whether cryptocurrency is an enabler of such attacks and what can be done in response.
Please join us for a webinar examining this growing threat. Our panel of professionals will provide case studies of ransomware attacks, including the use of cryptocurrencies and the role of cybersecurity, and will discuss legal, business, and PR consequences that companies should be prepared for in the event of an attack. In addition, the panelists will discuss what companies should expect from authorities, regulators, financial institutions, the virtual asset community, and law enforcement.
