How Do We Really Solve Ransomware?

As ransomware attacks continue to increase and with no real sign of them stopping, cyber insurers and organizations alike are grabbling with the fact that ransomware is sticking around as a severe problem. What makes ransomware different and more problematic than other cyber risks and how do cyber professionals curb its spread? Partner Carolyn Purwin Ryan tries to answer these questions, and more, during her 2021 Advisen Cyber Risk Insights Conference session, “How Do We Really Solve Ransomware?.”

On October 20, 2021, Carolyn and co-presenters David Duncan (Redpoint Cyber) and Aarti Soni (McGriff Insurance Services) look at how ransomware incidents (double/triple extortion and data manipulation) are changing the cybersecurity game. Additionally, an understanding of what happens during a ransomware incident, and the damaging effects of threat actor manipulation, is presented for attendees so that they may best arm themselves with valuable and insightful information needed to protect themselves from future incidents.

This session is presented on the second day of the Cyber Risk Insights Conference from 10:05 am – 10:50 am, wherein the theme is Ransomware and Regulation.

The annual Advisen Cyber Risk Insights conference is typically a one-day event of discussions on the most relevant and pressing cyber insurance and risk content in the industry today. This year, however, from the comfort of a virtual setting, attendees will get three days of insights on ransomware, cyber risk modeling, market capacity and more.
