WHO IT'S FOR: This white paper is written for those interested in understanding Ransomware, it’s history, and how this new ‘delivery model’ has caused it to blow up. For technical readers, there are some mitigations included - but non-technical stakeholders will still find the rest understandable.
WHAT'S IN IT: We provide the evolutionary milestones of Ransomware, leading up to RaaS; we discuss the components of this model that parallel those of legitimate businesses; we offer strategies to mitigate the risk of impact from ransomware; we make the case for Machine Learning-based solutions to aid in this effort.
HOW IT HELPS: The goal of this white paper is to offer a primer on ransomware development, and its impact along the attack lifecycle. This helps you avert negative organizational outcomes, including business interruption, data loss, and business impact.
We will offer some (at times, restrictive) ways you can reduce risk without machine-speed capabilities, and make a case for incorporating AI-enabled, intelligent MDR in your cybersecurity strategy.
