CISO Corner: Episode 8

Episode Topic: Hackers have demanded ransom. Now what?

Featuring: Mark Houpt, DataBank’s Chief Information Security Officer

Listen to Mark Houpt as he answers and discusses the circumstances that make an IT environment more susceptible to a ransomware attack as well as 4 key questions:
• Have you seen situations where an IT department seems to be doing everything right but still gets hacked?
• What would you recommend to the head of an enterprise IT department when he or she receives a ransom demand? What should happen in the first minutes and then in the following hours?
• Are there guidelines for when it does or does not make sense to pay the ransom?
• Can you share a success story where the hackers were the losers in the scenario?

Run Time: 11 minutes
