This week we are joined by Greg Edwards, CEO and founder of CryptoStopper, to discuss once again the important topic of ransomware. We talk about the challenges typically experienced by ransomware victims, especially exfiltration and potential exposure of sensitive data. The only way to stop that particular attack is stop the data from being exfiltrated in the first place. CryptoStopper has a way to detect that a ransomware attack has begun, but stopping it before it does any actual damage.
