Cyber Series: A Day in the Life of a Threat Actor Negotiator

The real question isn’t if a cyber-attack will occur but when, and this can pose a fundamental threat to an organization's value.

In this month’s cybersecurity and data privacy podcast – ‘A day in the life of....’ Lewis Pedley interviews Ankura expert Danny Howett as he offers insight into life as a Threat Actor Negotiator within our incident response team, and the importance of recovering value for our clients as quickly and efficiently as possible. Key themes:

  • Ransomware, web-based attacks, and data exfiltration  
  • Cybercrime investigations and law enforcement
  • Negotiation techniques, traits, and terms
  • Threat actors – Dark web – chat platforms
  • Understanding threat actor motivations
  • Data back-ups, robust cybersecurity plans, and recovery methods
