Joseph Moreno comments on the hottest topics and trends in the privacy and cybersecurity arena in 2020, including ransomware attacks by cybercriminals who use malicious software typically sent as an email attachment or link to seize control of a target network and lock users out.
An excerpt from "5 Cybersecurity & Privacy Predictions For 2020," Law360, January 1, 2020:
"Ransomware continues to be a real scourge and it's gradually increasing, since you don't need insider credentials to spread it and even with a tiny hit rate, hackers can get a good amount of money," said Joseph Moreno, a former federal prosecutor and partner in Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft LLP's white collar defense and investigations group.
