Should Countries Ban Ransomware Payments?
Ransomware actors continue to perpetrate their heinous crimes because, in aggregate, the attacks are lucrative. But what if ransomware became non-lucrative? What if that change came by way of sweeping regulations and mandates from governments around the world?
This episode of Wait Just an Infosec is hosted by ransomware subject-matter experts Ryan Chapman, who invites on Mr. Allan "Ransomware Sommelier" Liska, author of "Ransomware: Understand. Prevent. Recover." to discuss what it would look like to ban ransomware payments.
After, SANS Senior Instructor Lance Spitzner discusses the 2023 SANS Security Awareness Report, which was released recently in mid-July.
