The Evolution of the CISO on paper seems to be something that is quite straight forward to understand. In reality, looks don’t always appear to be what they seem, especially at the surface. Once you start to dig, pull, prye, and examine what is below, you will find much more than you bargained for. The real story is what lies beneath.
It is believed that the first person who claimed the title as a CISO was an individual who worked for Citigroup, his name is Steve Katz back in 1995.
Ransomware is a type of malware which encrypts your personal files and sells the decryption key back to you for a ransom, normally in the range of hundreds to thousands of dollars.
Although the earliest examples of what could be considered modern ransomware date back to the beginning of 2012, ransomware became a widespread phenomenon towards the end of 2013 with the release of CryptoLocker.
The dramatic rise of ransomware can be explained by a combination of several factors: the ease at which criminals can deploy a working system, an increase in the use of Tor and bitcoin, as well as its high and immediate return on investment.
