Increasingly high-profile cyber-attacks are crippling government agencies, hospitals, universities, and critical infrastructure, with the goal of extracting a ransom.
Dr. Josephine Wolff is an assistant professor of cybersecurity policy at The Fletcher School of Tufts University, and published the book “You’ll See This Message When It Is Too Late: The Legal and Economic Aftermath of Cybersecurity Breaches.” She discussed topics including:
Which systems are most vulnerable to ransomware attacks;
The risks of these types of attacks to the public;
What is being done to prevent them, and whether it is it enough; and
What more could or should be done to safeguard vulnerable targets.
