Ransomware Trends to Watch in 2019
By Zane Pokorny on February 25, 2019
2018 was an interesting year for ransomware — there were more documented ransomware campaigns than the year before, but there was also a feeling that the focus had shifted to other forms of cybercrime, like cryptojacking.
Our guest today is Allan Liska, senior solutions architect at Recorded Future. He’s the author of a recently published blog post, “4 Ransomware Trends to Watch in 2019.” We discuss the growth of the ransomware market, its impact (or lack thereof), the most effective avenues for ransomware infection, how one strain has found success by bucking the trends, and the increasingly fuzzy line between criminal groups and nation-state actors.
