Leveraging data science to minimize the blast radius of ransomware attacks

As ransomware groups continue to build on their arsenal of tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), it’s essential for cybersecurity professionals to assess the levels of risk to their organizations using multiple sources of information for a comprehensive outlook on this ever-evolving threat. Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) data, for example, can guide defenders in determining which areas they need to concentrate on when it comes to patching priorities.

In this blog entry, Trend Micro researchers present a case study that illustrates how data-science techniques can be used to gain valuable insights about ransomware groups’ targeting patterns as detailed in our research paper, “What Decision-Makers Need to Know About Ransomware Risk.”
