Event Highlights:

Interview with an OT Ransomware ThreatACTOR: Attendees will gain unique insights into the mindset and tactics of OT ransomware threat actors through an anonymous interview with an individual who claims to have been involved in such attacks. This rare perspective will shed light on the motivations and methods employed by these malicious actors.

Data on OT Ransomware Incidents: An in-depth analysis of recent data on OT ransomware incidents will be presented, revealing alarming trends in the cyber-physical world. With annual increases in attacks, the presentation and panel discussion will highlight the urgent need for organizations to bolster their defenses against this evolving threat and recommended practices to do so.

The Ransomware Ecosystem: An exploration of the ransomware ecosystem will unveil the intricate web of threat actors, their motivations, tools, and illicit services that facilitate these attacks. Understanding this ecosystem is vital for developing effective defense strategies.

Responding to Ransomware in the Cyber-Physical World: Cybersecurity experts share key strategies, learned from handling real-world incidents, for responding to ransomware attacks in the cyber-physical world. By emphasizing prevention, robust incident response, collaboration, and resilience, organizations can mitigate risks and minimize the impact of ransomware incidents.
