Ransomware Continues to Top Cybercrime

You don’t have to be a tech pro to be aware of how pervasive and destructive criminal cyberattacks on consumers, businesses and public institutions have become these days – with ransomware being first among them. In fact, the latest annual edition of Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) reports that ransomware incursions accounted for 75% of the malware-driven security incidents of the past 12 months.

The aggressive and lucrative use of ransomware as a favored cybercrime weapon has long been the focus of Eric O’Neill, the renowned former FBI counter-intelligence and author of the recently-published "Gray Day: My Undercover Mission to Expose America’s First Cyberspy", which recounts his role in unmasking and imprisoning notorious FBI mole Robert Hannsen (which was also told in 2007's "Breach").

A sought-after consultant on cybersecurity issues, O’Neill has been announced a featured speaker at the first annual Acronis Global Cyber Summit in October ... and he’s ready to dive deep.
