Get to know all about Leakware
Ransomware remains a hot topic but leakware is taking the stage by storm. Truesec has for a long time been battling data exfiltration as a secondary objective in relation to ransomware, and it is not a new occurrence.
However, exfiltration has commonly been the secondary, and not primary objective. This is where a notable shift in focus has started taking place, meaning that organizations need to adapt accordingly and protect what will be the most valuable assets of tomorrow.
