AppSec Decoded: Reducing the risk of ransomware

Ransomware prevention and mitigation should be on your radar in 2022. Get the do’s and don’ts in our latest episode of AppSec Decoded.

Ransomware is not a new threat, but some of last year’s high-profile headlines, Kaseya and Colonial Pipeline, have brought the topic to the forefront of the cybersecurity industry.

In the wake of these headlines, the government has acknowledged the need for improved cybersecurity measures. President Biden’s Executive Order 14028 directs the National Institute of Technology (NIST) and other agencies to create specific guidelines for organizations doing business with the government. These guidelines aim to improve resistance to cybersecurity attacks like ransomware. And although they won’t be a requirement for organizations that aren’t working directly with government agencies, they are likely to become a de facto baseline for how software is built, tested, secured, and operated for all organizations.

What can organizations do to protect themselves from becoming the next cybersecurity failure headline in 2022? There is no plan that exists to make an organization entirely bulletproof but having well-established preventive and response measures can help manage the risks.

Watch our latest episode of AppSec Decoded, featuring Sammy Migues, principal scientist at Synopsys and coauthor of the BSIMM report, and Tim Mackey, principal security strategist at Synopsys Cybersecurity Research Center (CyRC), as they discuss the do’s and don’ts of ransomware prevention and mitigation.
