Complimentary webinar, presented by BAE Systems Applied Intelligence
As ransomware continues its march, a ‘perfect storm’ of factors has contributed to the success of this criminal enterprise. Criminal groups are expected to continue in this vein, evolving their tools and finding ways to collaborate, resulting in a greater number of effective attacks. We anticipate increased use of ransomware-like attacks by unscrupulous state actors, both for financial gain, as well as for disruption under a false flag. Recent advisories by the US Treasury are a sign of policy complexities to come, along with legislation around ransom payment.
