The Evolution of Ransomware for Government Agencies

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

Financially motivated transnational criminal groups, primarily operating out of eastern Europe, Russia, and Iran have found ransomware to be a powerful tool for profit generation. The targeting of U.S. state and municipal governments, healthcare institutions, critical infrastructure providers, and our nation’s universities coupled with the rise of big game hunting, ransomware as a service, and increased collaboration between adversarial state intelligence services and criminal groups increases the salience of this issue. Agencies across the Department of Justice, Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and SOCs throughout the federal government have equities in understanding the threats.
