This week on Privacy Please, we open a two-part series on Ransomware. This week the U.S. announced that it will give ransomware hacks similar priority as terrorism. There is a seismic shift currently underway towards bigger ransoms for sensitive company data. https://www.reuters.com/technology/exclusive-us-give-ransomware-hacks-similar-priority-terrorism-official-says-2021-06-03/
Ransomware is an established megatrend (https://cloudian.com/ransomware-attack-list-and-alerts/) that has not seen a decline while continuing to reach new heights and so we are going to dedicate time to helping our privacy pros get up to speed on the implications this trend has in our first episode. In episode number two of this series, we invite Matthew Newfield, Chief Security Infrastructure Officer @ Unisys to help our listeners push past the FUD and share actionable intelligence on building resiliency into your data protection programs!
Bonus: This week’s episode will be followed by a lunch conversation on Friday at Noon est. Join us then to discuss this topic and others.
