Theresa Payton on Ransomware: Malware as an Ongoing Email Issue

When it comes to ransomware, cybercriminals are upping the ante. Delivery methods have evolved, payouts are growing in frequency and total cost, and there are more malicious actors participating in ransomware than ever before.

Since the beginning of 2020, we’ve seen a 600% increase in the number of active ransomware groups. Clearly, threat actors are noticing an easy entry point—particularly through email.

In this webinar, Abnormal CISO Mike Britton is joined by Theresa Payton, cybersecurity expert and the first female White House CIO, to discuss why over 76% of ransomware is delivered through email. Mike and Theresa answer questions like:

  • What are the main ransomware attack vectors, and how do they work?

  • How have malware and ransomware evolved over the past decade and why are these attacks so much more dangerous today?

  • Why are your employees still being held for ransom, despite increased awareness?

  • What can you do to protect your inboxes (and your organization) from this threat?
