Ransomware groups are looking for ways to reach your critical assets, to increase their chances of getting a higher ransom payout. For the same reason, they have begun employing the double extortion technique, where before encrypting your data, they exfiltrate it and then threaten to leak it online. Searching for routes to reach your critical assets, attackers are lying low, propagating the network as a result of misconfigurations, unpatched vulnerabilities and mismanaged credentials.

You probably have some questions. Join our open-ended Q&A session, where a forum of experts will relieve any doubts and answer all your questions.

Here are some examples to get you started:


  • Are there emerging techniques of ransomware that make use of other techniques besides encryption?
  • Do we still call it ransomware if a valuable cloud resource is held for ransom?
  • How should an organization simulate a ransomware attack?
  • From the attacker’s perspective, what is ransomware behind the scenes?
  • What are the differences between the ransomware of 2019 to the ransomware of 2021, and how do you envision the ransomware attacks in 2022 and beyond?
