Over the past few years, ransomware has been on the rise, and the unfortunate reality is that if you haven’t already, you may soon be faced with the difficult decision of whether to pay a ransomware demand. There are many factors that go into this complicated decision, but the most overlooked factor is the potential sanctions risk associated with making a ransom payment. Fortunately, there are many specialists in the ransomware space that are available to help you navigate the turbulent compliance landscape.

The panel comprises some of those ransomware specialists. They will explain the sanctions risks associated with ransomware payments, the importance of assessing that risk, and the steps you can take to minimize your risk before making a payment. The panel will also discuss actions already taken by the U.S. government to address ransomware payments and future actions that are currently being contemplated.
