Tuesday, October 26 // 60 minutes // 10 AM PT, 1 PM ET
Ransomware attacks on organizations are increasing at an alarming rate. Almost 2,400 organizations in the United States were victimized last year alone.
Ransomware attacks, in which hackers lock up a computer system and demand a ransom to free up the system are a global problem. Paying a ransom comes with compliance risks. As the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) warned in an October 2020 advisory, paying ransoms potentially results in compliance violations if the cyber-criminal demanding the payment has a sanctions nexus.
Mitigating cybersecurity risks, like ransomware attacks require a collective effort. You need coordination with compliance and information security leaders across your business.
