with James Maude, Lead Cyber Security Researcher
The threats to critical infrastructure have long been a festering concern in the cybersecurity industry. With the recent attack against Colonial Pipeline by the cyber-criminal gang DarkSide, the world witnessed just how vulnerable some critical systems and infrastructure are to attack. DarkSide has gone from a relatively unknown criminal enterprise of ransomware to one of the biggest and most consequential operators in the world. But let's be clear - DarkSide isn't the first of their kind, and most certainly won't be the last.
In our June LinkedIn Live Event, James Maude, Cyber Security Researcher and Morey Haber, BeyondTrust CTO/CISO have an unscripted, candid discussion about the specifics of the DarkSide ransomware attack and what the future holds for securing Critical Infrastructure.
