Ransomware. What, Me Worry? with John Shier

About This Episode

John Shier, Senior Security Advisor at Sophos, joins the podcast this week for a deep dive into today’s ransomware threats landscape and insights uncovered in the recent Sophos research reports, including the “2022 State of Ransomware Report” and “Active Adversary Playbook.”

We explore future state themes of ransomware such as the geopolitics of ransomware, simultaneous attack and dwell time trends, will we ever get to a ransomware ‘flat fee’, increasing the resilience requirement for companies seeking cyber insurance, and industries such as healthcare that are seeing sizable upticks in attacks (and how these can be mitigated ahead).
