ISMG Launches Ransomware Resource Center ISMG Launches Ransomware Resource Center

Portal provides industry leading news, education and research on one of the largest cyber challenges today

Princeton, N.J. January 24, 2017

Information Security Media Group, the leading media provider to the information security community, announces the launch of its new resource center covering one of the biggest cyber threats we face today: Ransomware. The resource center is dedicated to providing in-depth news, analysis, research and insights from ISMG’s award-winning editorial team, industry influencers and technology providers from around the globe to educate organizations on the evolving ransomware threat.

Ransomware has rapidly become one of the world’s most prevalent types of cybercrime as enterprises large and small, across all verticals, have been targeted and victimized. Criminals use highly automated and easily distributed crypto-locking software to forcibly encrypt systems and often demand bitcoin payment in exchange for the decryption key, thus holding entire systems for ransom. With attacks increasing in scope and severity, it is necessary to provide in-depth coverage for the worldwide information risk management community. 

The Ransomware Resource Center showcases ISMG’s extensive coverage of this topic, including:

  • The latest details on emerging ransomware variants;
  • Threat intelligence on attackers;
  • Best practices for detection, response and remediation.

“Over the past year, ransomware has emerged not just as one of the world’s top threats, but as one of the fastest-evolving,” says Tom Field, vice president of editorial at Information Security Media Group. “ISMG consistently has kept pace, covering the evolution of ransomware and the solutions designed to improve detection, protection and response. This resource center is an essential, must-bookmark site for the latest news, education and insights on ransomware threats and defenses.”

While many threats exist, ransomware is one of the most consequential for it involves extortion on a massive scale. Our goal is to educate visitors on ransomware’s latest adaptations, targets, culprits and victims, including where attacks are coming from and whether or not organizations decide to pay the ransom.

ISMG and our industry-leading partners are committed to providing a best-of-breed Center to share ransomware thought leadership and to help organizations save their data, money and reputation. Sponsorship from top cybersecurity and IT companies through featured whitepapers, infographics, interviews and webinars enable ISMG to deliver intelligence on the latest attacks as well as timely product information and expert advice, empowering organizations to stay ahead in the battle against ransomware.
