The hackers won’t let you go. Time to go after them

Mel Gibson starred in a movie, “Ransom,” playing a millionaire who turned the tables on kidnappers of his child by offering the ransom as a reward for revealing the criminals. It may be time to take that kind of aggressive action with ransomware. In our interview with John Flory III, CISO for Harbor Networks, he explains why it is absolutely necessary to go on offense now and hunt the hackers down. He gives us a preview of a case he worked on with international law enforcement that resulted in the arrest, extradition and prosecution of a ransomware ring. We will hear more from Flory in the coming weeks but his recommendations can bear fruit as hackers become more brazen.
