Biweekly Analyst Threat Call (Members Only)

This week’s presentation will be on ransomware and presented by Tom Montroy and Jake Olcott of BitSight.

Abstract:

How can Energy sector security professionals avoid joining the growing list of ransomware victims? BitSight is analyzing
the security performance of thousands of ransomware victims to identify common challenges and key programmatic areas to improve to reduce risk. In research published last week, BitSight found that poor patching performance is a strong indicator of increased
risk to ransomware -- in fact, organizations with less mature patching programs are 7x more likely to experience a ransomware incident.

Presenters:

Tom Montroy, BitSight’s  Director of Data Science, and Jake Olcott, VP of Gov Affairs, who will share findings from
recent research and specific insights for the Energy sector.
