Ransomware attacks are no longer just about encrypting data. They've morphed into a more sinister strategy: stealing data from substantial companies and then hanging the threat of its public release over their heads unless a hefty ransom is settled. More often than not, these criminals demand payment in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
Today, I joined a panel at Austin Startup Week to discuss "How Unsupervised Neural Networking Roots Out Insider Threats." The conversation, took place at the Capital Factory here in Austin, Texas—an ideal setting for a forward-thinking cybersecurity discussion.
Austin Startup Week, since its inception in 2011, has always been a vibrant tapestry of Austin's entrepreneurial spirit. A unique confluence of entrepreneurs, local leaders, and enthusiasts, it offers a rich platform to connect, collaborate, and grow.
