Ransomware has become an increasingly prevalent global threat, with estimations of an attack on a business every 11 seconds. The consequences are extensive ranging from financial losses, disruption of services, distribution of malware, damage to critical infrastructures, and psychological effects on victims, particularly when sensitive or personal data is lost or stolen.

Nonetheless, advanced cyber economies have united against that threat, in a partnerships-based effort, to enhance market resilience against ransomware campaigns and disrupt ransomware operations, while focusing on threat actors, their supportive infrastructures and their illicit proceeds.

The Cyber Week 2023 event will facilitate a conference, hosted by Israel National Cyber Directorate and Israel National Police in which stakeholders from law enforcement and cyber defense communities, as well as regulators and members of the cybersecurity industry, to discuss essential frameworks, best practices and partnerships, which are essential for targeting the ransomware kill chain.
