How to combat ransomware - presented by Wade Islan with Ciaran Martin, Oxford University
This week we are featuring an interview focused on ransomware and conducted by a Senior Analyst from the Economist, Wade Islan. Wade’s guest is Ciaran Martin, Professor of Practice in the Management of Public Organisations.
Prior to joining Oxford, Ciaran was the founding Chief Executive of the UK National Cyber Security Centre, part of GCHQ. Ciaran brings his expert analysis to this conversation and provides his perspective on what board members should know about ransomware, steps organisations can take to protect themselves, the value of human versus the technical controls and processes, resource considerations for best outcomes, the nuances in ransomware for different countries, the politics and global collaboration required to fight the problem, and what the future of ransomware will likely look like.
