2022 Keynote Valery Marchive: Why We Fail at Fighting Ransomware
We are honored to have Valery Marchive as our keynote speaker this year, and his talk, Why We Fail at Fighting Ransomware, could not be more timely. From his synopsis:
The number of ransomware attacks around the globe has considerably gone up throughout the past years, and there doesn’t to be any hope for a real decrease. The reasons for it are numerous, both of the user companies side as well as vendors. There might be a fairly good reason for hope, even though the ransomware “business” keeps on striving.
