Shawn Tuma Discusses Outlawing Ransomware Payments in SecureWorld Podcast

Spencer Fane attorney Shawn Tuma recently joined the SecureWorld Remote Sessions podcast as a featured guest to discuss the pros and cons of making ransomware payments illegal.

Shawn provided insight on the stages organizations and security teams experience during a data breach, including preparation, response, and ransomware payments.

“In a ransomware case, no we don’t need a call Monday, we need a call in 15 minutes [and] we need to be moving within the next hour,” Shawn noted. “I believe cybersecurity and especially ransomware is the single greatest threat that companies face [and] far too many companies think this won’t happen to them.”
