Are you concerned about the impact of ransomware attacks on your organization? If so, you won't want to miss the upcoming SANS Ransomware Summit, where our experts Bryce Webster-Jacobsen and Sean Jones will present their session, "Beyond Encryption: Exploring the Tactics Ransomware Operators Use During Negotiation and their Impact." Register now for the event this Friday, June 23. 

Ransomware attacks can be devastating for businesses of all sizes. While encryption is a key aspect of these attacks, negotiation is the phase where attackers interact with victims and try to negotiate a ransom payment. That's why it's essential for businesses to understand the tactics used by ransomware operators during negotiation and their impact on organizations.

During this talk, you'll gain valuable insights into:

  • the psychological tactics used by attackers, including fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD)
  • How attackers build rapport with victims
  • Social engineering tactics threat actors use, such as impersonation and deception
  • The tools that ransomware operators use during negotiation

Perhaps most importantly, the session will conclude with practical advice for businesses to mitigate the risks of ransomware attacks. You'll gain an understanding of the financial impact of these attacks, including the cost of ransom payments, business interruption, and reputational damage. Plus, you'll learn how to protect your organization from these threats, including steps to take before and after an attack.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights into the tactics used by ransomware operators and how to protect your organization from these attacks.
