AppSec decoded: reducing the risk of ransomware


Ransomware prevention and mitigation should be on your radar in 2022. Learn the do’s and don’ts in our latest episode of AppSec Decoded.

Ransomware isn’t a new threat, but some of the headlines of the past year, Kaseya and Colonial Pipeline, have brought the topic to the forefront of the cybersecurity industry.

As a result of these headlines, the government recognized the need to improve cybersecurity measures. President Biden’s Executive Order 14028 directs the National Institute of Technology (NIST) and other agencies to create specific guidelines for organizations doing business with the government. These guidelines aim to improve resistance to cybersecurity attacks like ransomware. And while they aren’t mandatory for organizations that don’t work directly with government agencies, they have the potential to become a de facto benchmark for how software is built, tested, secured, and operated for all organizations.

What can organizations do to avoid becoming the next cybersecurity failure headline in 2022? There is no plan to make an organization entirely bulletproof, but having well-established prevention and response measures can help manage risk.

Watch our latest episode of AppSec Decoded, featuring Sammy Migues, Principal Scientist at Synopsys and co-author of the BSIMM report, and Tim Mackey, Senior Security Strategist at Synopsys Cybersecurity Research Center (CyRC), as they discuss the do’s and don’ts of ransomware prevention and mitigation.
