On the Wire Podcast: Rick Holland on Ransomware

Let’s be honest: The ransomware crews are kind of winning right now. They have a simple, clean business model, a huge victim base, and not much on the horizon to slow them down. In this episode, Dennis Fisher talks with Rick Holland of Digital Shadows about a new research paper the firm did on ransomware gangs, as well as other kinds of online extortion schemes, such as DDoS extortion. Rick talks about the extortion landscape, what’s enabling these operations, and what might be done to stop them.
