The CISO of Venice
There is no shame in being under a ransomware attack.
The inspiration for this Cybertoon is Act III, scene I of William Shakespeare’s, The Merchant of Venice “If you prick us, do we not bleed?….. if you poison us, do we not die?”
It is the notion of the inevitable consequence – people dealing with Information Technology are forced to pay ransomware to keep their business running. They are not careless, they are not wrong, they are not weak. They are just in dire straits.
The silver lining is that new technology has presented itself that can tell you in one click if and how ransomware can hit you and what the “blast radius” would be if it does. There is hope in the form of PenTera by Pcysys.
