Headlines in Cybersecurity: Ransomware

Date: October 28, 2021

Hosted By: FedInsider & Carahsoft

Ransomware cyberattacks vaulted into public awareness with a vengeance when an East Coast gasoline pipeline shut down for days, causing a shortage and long lines at the gas pump when drivers panicked. But hospitals, schools and local governments have been dealing with ransomware threats for some time.

"The problem we saw, especially with COVID, was we saw a huge increase in the number of attacks. Work from home actually expanded the attack surface. So now, when we talk to customers, the conversation is how do I protect my edge of my network?" - James M.T. Morrison, Distinguished Technologist in Cybersecurity for the Office of the North America CTO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
