TIPS#13 Keynote: Might as well face it you’re addicted to law (enforcement)

Matt Olney (Cisco)
As we experience the knock-on effects of ransomware activities in critical sectors, we need to look at when it is appropriate to move past traditional law enforcement measures and engage other government capabilities to defend critical infrastructure. Additionally, when nations decide to use the full spectrum of capabilities available to them, including diplomacy, intelligence, law enforcement and offensive cyber operations, what is the appropriate role of the private sector and what can they supply to the global effort to disrupt and dismantle ransomware activity?
