Abstract: Feeding the bears - What happens when you pay the Ransom?
Industry sources show that the number of firms who pay ransoms has doubled from 14% to upwards of 28% in 2019. Lewis Borsellino has had multiple experiences with clients whom had no choice but to pay or lose irreplaceable data. Lewis will walk us through what it looks like to negotiate and pay a ransom in crypto-currency and what the results look like if-and-when you get a decryption key back from the attackers.
