Turning words into action – the future of tackling ransomware

When: Wednesday 16 June 2021Time: 12:30 - 13:30 BST

Ransomware continues to be a high-profile threat, showing no signs of waning without coordinated action. The recent high-profile attacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the Irish Healthcare system, and the announcement of the Ransomware Task Force are all major developments that increase the profile of ransomware.  But as solutions are raised to tackle this issue, so are questions.  

Join us as we discuss these recent developments. The panel will be tackling some of the controversial issues head on – did cryptocurrency create ransomware? With insurers becoming a key pillar of support for ransomware victims, Where do they fit into the response? Will the recent Biden Executive Order make any difference?

Around all of these questions, there is a risk that these ideas do not become action, or that action is taken too late. We will discuss the steps that need to be taken today, both across industry but also for individual organisations. This session will be of interest to not just those with direct responsibility for cyber and information security and those in the insurance industry, but for business owners and founders, General Counsel, Directors, Board Members and senior decision makers within organisations, as well as practitioners and those following the news of these attacks closely.
