This event covered:

  • Recent incidents and their ransom amounts
  • What happened to those who paid and what it cost for those who didn't
  • The logic behind the FBI recommendations on ransomware
  • The influence of insurance policies on ransomware payments
  • Pressures insurance companies place on ransomware victims
  • Ransomware's incentives for cybercriminals
