Increasing Ransomware in COVID: Responding to Double Extortion

Hosted by Nihon Cyber Defence

With the concept of “Thinking Cybersecurity in the UK in the Context of Japanese Organisations,” the NCD Insight online seminar series delivers the latest security trends and knowledge for global organisations. The seminar will hold monthly for six months.

Cyber actors break into the corporate network, steal sensitive information, and 1) encrypt files, demand ransoms (first extortion), 2) threaten to publish stolen files if they do not accept payments (second extortion). As a route of intrusion, multilingual overseas bases are targeted.

Presentation by John Noble CBE, the former NCSC incident response director

John will share lessons learned from ransomware incidents in the UK. He will talk about his experience of leading numerous serious cyber incidents at the national level both at the NCSC and from his role as a non-executive director at NHS Digital where he oversees Cyber Security. John will also provide explanation on what good organisations do when they are hit by a cyber incident.
