Task Force Gives Terrible Advice About Ransomware


I couldn’t help myself, I had to rant about this! A ‘security research’ group is recommending against banning ransomware payments, which would eradicate these attacks from occurring, and instead want money to be spent on communications campaigns, gathering metrics, and spending more on insurance. …all of which does not actually stop ransomware.

This is crazy and quite sad.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Here is a link to their recommendations (.pdf): https://securityandtechnology.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Roadmap-to-Potential-Prohibition-of-Ransomware-Payments.pdf

Here is a link to a ton of videos about how to actually end ransomware if we were so inclined: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuIYhlNYyCmn0cCA6OqHqfL_qGSsizxBF

So keep paying ransomware, pay for more security, and increased insurance?
