Kevin Mitnick Encrypts your Cloud

Updated: Jan 10

I was recently out at one of the Datto conferences where there was a demo by Kevin Mitnick, one of the world's most famous hackers. Kevin now runs a company as a "white hat" hacker where he teaches companies about security by first exposing their vulnerabilities, and then telling them how to protect themselves.

He did a demo of a Ransomware product that will encrypt cloud services that I thought you should see. (Think Office 365, G-suite, etc) Check out the video here

In this demo, he live-encrypts all of a user's cloud-hosted email. The only solution to this would be to either pay the ransom or to have a cloud backup product like Backupify in place prior to the hack. We highly recommend the latter solution. ;).

Backupify is inexpensive and backs up all Office 365 mailboxes, OneDrive Contents, and SharePoint sites, G-suite.
