This week, governments from around the world came together and agreed that ransomware represents "an escalating global security threat."

No prescriptions were announced, though the meeting was meant to address topics such as:

  • Misuse of virtual currency like bitcoin
  • Prosecutions
  • Diplomacy
  • Focusing on ransomware resiliency

Some that will happen down the road, surely, are boatloads of sanctions.

One thing to remember, though, is this: Cyber actors won't stop ransomware attacks because a group of nations says they're going to focus more intently on the problem.

Ransomware is happening at warp speed now. As an enterprise, your best best is deploying a cybersecurity solution that not only blocks ransomware before it reaches the inbox but one that scans your cloud storage apps for any pre-existing attacks waiting to detonate.
