Tony Gee will be at the IASME Pavilion, presenting twice each day: Patch my stuff? No thanks. I’d rather pay the ransom.
This presentation will discuss the threats facing the legal world, including ransomware and the many data leaks from law firms. A lot of these are brushed under the carpet, although there are cases of law firms seeking high court judgements to prevent cyber criminals publishing data, data obtained through an already illegal hack.
The root problem is that most ransomware attacks are enabled by the company from; not patching critical flaws, leaving services like RDP publicly available, using weak passwords. These are things that Cyber Essentials mitigates.
