Ransomware: How Bad Could it Be?

Joe Leon
Riskatto, VP of Product

We make a living breaking into computer networks. In the last several years, customers have repeatedly asked, "Now that you've compromised my network, do you know how bad it would be if ransomware executed in our network?". It sounded like a simple question. "How bad would it be?". That single question triggered a multi-year journey culminating in the creation a new business. In this talk, we want to walk the audience through the questions we haven't heard asked enough, with the goal of getting close to answering "How bad would it be?". We want to spark new ideas and questions to better understand the true impact of a ransomware event. This talk is for IT security analysts, CISOs, insurance underwriters, insurance brokers, government employees, service providers (like MSP/MSSPs), and anyone else who could benefit from considering "How bad would it be?".
