NCD Insight 2-Increasing Ransomware in COVID: Responding to Double Extortion October 8th, 9:00 (London) / 17:00 (Tokyo) Online
** Main language of this event is Japanese**
With the concept of “Thinking Cybersecurity in the UK in the Context of Japanese Organisations,” the NCD Insight online seminar series delivers the latest security trends and knowledge for global organisations. The seminar will hold monthly for six months.
The topic of the second seminar is “Increasing Ransomware in COVID: Responding to Double Extortion”. Cyber actors break into the corporate network, steal sensitive information, and 1) encrypt files, demand ransoms (first extortion), 2) threaten to publish stolen files if they do not accept payments (second extortion). As a route of intrusion, multilingual overseas bases are targeted.
In this seminar John Noble CBE, the former NCSC incident response director, will share lessons learned from ransomware incidents in the UK. He will talk about his experience of leading numerous serious cyber incidents at the national level both at the NCSC and from his role as a non-executive director at NHS Digital where he oversees Cyber Security. John will also explain what good organisations do when they are hit by a cyber incident. In the second half, Toshio Nawa, an incident response specialist who also took the stage in the last seminar, will focus on double extortion tactics to explain the changes of the cyber threats compared to the past, and the threat trends targeting Japanese organisations. Toshio will explain what action should be taken at oversea bases and share his tips on responding to double extortions.
During our seminar, you can ask questions to speakers via chat anytime.
