ISMG Editors: Will Ransomware Kill Cyber Insurance?Discussion Also Tackles Significance of REvil Arrests
In the latest weekly update, four editors at Information Security Media Group discuss important cybersecurity issues, including the state of cyber insurance today and why its future is uncertain, applying a security-by-design reliability model to analyze vulnerabilities and how Russia takes down members of the REvil ransomware group as cyber aggressions in Ukraine rise.
The editors - Tom Field, senior vice president, editorial; Anna Delaney, director, productions; Mathew Schwartz, executive editor, DataBreachToday & Europe; and Geetha Nandikotkur, managing editor, Asia & the Middle East - discuss:
- Highlights from an interview to be broadcast at ISMG's upcoming Financial Services Summit with Fred Harris of Societe Generale on the state of the cyber insurance market today and its future;
- Takeaways from an interview with Ian Keller of Ericsson on how his organization detected and responded to the Log4j vulnerability;
- The significance of the arrest of individuals linked to the REvil ransomware operation by the Russian government and whether it is tied in any way to Russia's massing of troops on the border with Ukraine or the defacement of multiple Ukrainian government sites last week.
