Understanding Ransomware

Our guest this week is Rachel Lerman, technology reporter at The Washington Post. She’s coauthor of a recent piece featured in the Post’s technology section titled, The Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack. The piece explains the who, what, when, where, and why of the growing, global problem of ransomware attacks. It’s one of those helpful explainers that those of us in the cybersecurity business can keep at the ready to pass on to our friends and colleagues who ask what this whole ransomware thing is all about, and why they should be concerned.
