Don’t Buy Data Deletion Promises | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report discusses why it is always a bad idea for organizations to pay hackers for data deletion, practical steps organizations can and should take to avoid being at the heart of a data subject complaint, and the latest efforts to tackle the ransomware threat.

In this report, you’ll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz explain why organizations that fall victim to a ransomware attack should never pay attackers for a promise to immediately delete the stolen data. Chances are, the data will be sold or leaked even if you do pay.
  • Edward Machin of law firm Ropes & Gray, offer advice on how to avoid being at the heart of a data subject complaint – following a surprise move by Britain’s Information Commissioner’s Office to publish a register of data breaches and individual complaints.
  • Cybersecurity veteran Jen Ellis discuss recent efforts to battle ransomware, including a new project taken on by think tank RUSI.

The ISMG Security Report appears weekly on this and other ISMG websites. Don’t miss the Dec. 8 and Dec. 15 editions, which respectively discuss the mistakes enterprises commonly make when building ransomware defenses and how prosecutors accuse FTX’s founder of crypto-based “deception.”
