In a very special (CS)2AI Incident Debrief event, four (CS)2AI Fellows will take us through the incident, it’s implications and what we can learn from it.
– What do we know about DarkSide, the ransomware group that’s behind the attack?
– How common are these attacks becoming? Are we aware of all of them, or only when there’s an undeniable effect outside the victim companies?
– What could Colonial Pipeline have done to prevent the attack, or reduce the impacts? What did they do right?
– What should other critical infrastructure entities be doing right to protect themselves against multi-million US$ ransom demands like this one?
