Ransomware Response: To Pay or Not to pay
April, 2017, Doug Hudson, Senior Director, Cyber Risk Advisory, Coalfire
Recently, I was speaking with a CISO friend of mine and he mentioned that his company suffered a breach. I asked if it was a ransomware attack, and sadly, that was the case. Malware had infected nearly every connected computer. Clearly there was a breakdown in protective controls, but I’ll get to that in another post. Digging deeper, I inquired if the amount was under $2,000. Another “yes”. Reported to the FBI….” yes” again!
