Aaron Bugal, field CTO, Sophos

To some extent, ransomware has become like COVID-19 - a threat we all need to learn to live alongside. But Aaron Bugal, field CTO of Sophos, says there is still much that security and technology leaders can do to reduce their risk by addressing activity that often precedes a ransomware attack.

In this video interview with ISMG, Bugal discusses the latest Sophos State of Ransomware report, including:

  • The latest trends regarding threats and threat actors;
  • The types of companies that are most likely to be attacked;
  • How to assess and address activities that precede a ransomware attack.

Bugal has been with Sophos for more than 12 years. He is based in Melbourne and spends the majority of his time helping organizations throughout Asia-Pacific and Japan effectively deploy and use Sophos' gateway, endpoint, network and encryption systems. Bugal articulates to customers and partners the threats in today's cybersecurity landscape and how best to defend against them.
