The dangers of ransomware and ways to mitigate the risk

Philip Bliss |

Today ransomware is becoming a massive problem for everyone, so we thought we would do a special feature on ransomware in business – the dangers and some ways to mitigate the risk.

It’s a difficult subject. Not surprisingly in the past 5 years there has been a renewed focus on how to overcome a problem that costs enterprises billions of dollars – and allows secrets to seep out. Today, we talk to Ed Dubrovsky, COO and Managing Partner at CYPFER. Ed has a tremendous knowledge base and for almost 30 years Ed Dubrovsky’s name has been synonymous with information security. He gives us some insightful thoughts on ransomware and how it is costing organizations billions of dollars. And he also has some suggestions on how to mitigate it.

Ed is a seasoned entrepreneur, executive & technical leader with over 29 years of experience building and growing technology companies with a deep technical acumen. Experience in managing over 4700 security incidents including ransomware, business email compromise, malicious insiders, extortion, executive protection, threat intelligence, and prevention/mitigation of risk associated to cyber-attacks.

He has deep experience in helping companies across all industries including military, defense, public and private sectors recover from cyber-attacks.

Ed has a keen interest in technology & cyber-security leadership, managing business growth under challenging conditions and constant change. Holder of Canadian secret II clearance.
