A recent report by Symantec noted that the number of targeted ransomware attacks increased dramatically – by over 400% – between 2017 and 2019. Given that reality, organizations would be prudent to dedicate a portion of their cyber incident playbook to ransomware scenarios. While the central question companies face is whether or not to make the ransom payment, there are a number of other considerations that should be evaluated ahead of time and codified into their playbook. This panel will address these considerations and offer best practices for preparing a ransomware incident response plan.
