Predicted to be a $20 Billion cybercrime empire by the end of 2021, Ransomware is impacting businesses like never before… resulting in loss of revenue, reputation, and resources for organizations of all types. To put things in perspective, it is reported that an attack hits once every 11 seconds, and as if that stat isn’t hard enough to fathom, it’s predicted to worsen in the near future.
As the war against Ransomware continues, I catch up with Ransomware-focused expert Greg Edwards at BarCode. Greg is the CEO at Cryptostopper, and his mission is to build a superior, global cybersecurity firm to defend businesses from the cybercriminals lurking in the shadows of the Internet.
We chat about the evolution of ransomware, recent ransomware attacks, why it’s unstoppable, unorthodox variants in the wild, and his ongoing pursuit to stop the bleeding.
