Welcome to our CyberTalks’ podcast. Ransomware attacks were estimated to exceed 500 million in 2021. Because of its increasing prevalence, organizations have prioritized strategies to mitigate and reduce ransomware threats. Today, VMWare’s Dale McKay and Bob Plankers explain what ransomware is, the impact of ransomware, ransomware mitigation strategies and even misconceptions about who might be a threat actor. We even learned of ransomware negotiators! As always, it’s great to have Dale and Bob on our show to discuss cybersecurity.
