CtrlAltBreach – Episode 2: Ransomware Containment
Beazley’s podcast CtrlAltBreach interviewed Managing Principal of Forensic Investigations at Lodestone, Josh Sudbury. Sudbury discussed what ransomware is, how it gets into a computer system, who the cybercriminals launching these cyber extortion attacks are, and how cybercriminals use the victims’ own computers to encrypt their data and hold it for ransom.
A ransomware incident is often a crisis for the organization experiencing it and if not handled correctly, it could mean the end of a smaller business. In Ransomware Containment, Josh explores how to contain a ransomware incident, what you should do and not do when you discover that you have a ransomware infection.
