Ransomware realities: the fallout of recent U.S. and international cyberattacks on corporate America
Colonial Pipelines, CNA Financial, JBS, iConstituent, and ADATA are a just handful of organizations that have been recently hit by ransomware and illustrate how no industry is immune to a cyberattack.
As a result of these and other attacks, swift and aggressive mandates by the Biden Administration and industry regulators, like TSA and CISA, are causing immediate changes in how companies handle their cybersecurity.
Duncan McAlynn, an industry expert specializing in ransomware and incident response, shares his insights into what caused the recent spikes in ransomware activity, the new rules of engagement, and how you should respond if you become the victim of a cyberattack.
P.S. New rules from the Department of Homeland Security for pipeline owners/operators:
- 12 hours to give notice to TSA/CISA
- Two named cybersecurity coordinators (security clearance capable)
- 24/7 access to the above-named individuals
