Reducing the Complexity of RansomwareAdam Kujawa of Malwarebytes on Taking Defenses to the Next Level
To start with, yes, the ransomware threat really is as serious as depicted in the news. But Adam Kujawa of Malwarebytes Labs believes there are actions - beyond endpoint protection - that organizations can take to reduce their risk of being the next high-profile victim.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Kujawa discusses:
- How bad the ransomware problem really is;
- Why ransomware defense need not be a formidable task;
- How to avoid common mistakes in prevention, detection and response.
Kujawa has been an active member of the information security profession for over 16 years. Working in the military, contracting and private sectors, he has analyzed and investigated hundreds of malware families over the years. In addition, he has instructed and educated both technical and nontechnical users through presentations, training opportunities, blog posts and articles.
