Dealing With Ransomware – The LeXFactor Briefs

Guest host Lexicon Senior Public Relations and Communications Manager Randy Schorfheide and co-host Chief Information Officer Brad Paubel host The LeXFactor Briefs, A Lawfully Good Podcast.

Randy and Brad highlight a recent article in LegalTechNews regarding ransomware in honor of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. They discuss what payors receive when they pay the ransom that the cyberattacker is demanding.

Brad describes the impact of the brand of an organization, if it were to come out that they paid a ransom after suffering a cyberattack, as well as the work that would need to be done after the payment, in order to make sure that the cyberattacker is no longer in a company’s computer systems.
