Barclay Damon Live: Cyber Sip—"The Danger of Paying Ransom and How to Test and Train Your Way to Prevention, With Mike McCartney"

In Episode 3, host Kevin Szczcepanski welcomes back Mike McCartney, the national director of cybersecurity for Avalon Cyber, for part two of their deep dive on ransomware. We heard from him in the last episode, but as a quick reminder, Mike’s impressive career includes being a highly decorated 22-year veteran of law enforcement (NY Attorney General’s office, FBI Cyber Crime Division, etc.) instrumental in the inception of the field of cybersecurity; he wrote the book that law enforcement still uses today. In this continuing conversation, “Ransomware with Mike McCartney, Part 2: Threat Landscape, Protection, and Response,” Kevin and Mike discuss the likelihood of a company being attacked (hint: it’s high), what company and organizations can do to protect themselves ahead of time (talk to experts; follow best practices for policies, employee training and more). And, if and when you are attacked, what are your first steps, who do you call? Should you pay the ransom to possibly get your data back? What is required if you are in a deeply regulated field? Perk your ears up for this critical talk to learn more.
