The Ransomware Files is pleased to host a special guest episode from our friends at Hacked. In mid-April, there was a ransomware attack. It wasn’t against a small business. It wasn’t directed at a large company or even a large city. It was against a country: Costa Rica. The Conti ransomware gang struck more than two dozen government bodies in Costa Rica in a wave of attacks. It was a demonstration of power and bravado with a motivation that appeared to go way beyond the usual aim of collecting a ransom.

Speakers: Jordan Bloemen, Co-Host, Hacked; Scott Francis Winder, Co-Host, Hacked; León Weinstock, Director, BLP Legal; Jeremy Kirk, Executive Editor, Information Security Media Group.
