R.J. Lehmann on Ransomware

Insurance Journal – ICLE Editor-in-Chief R.J. Lehmann was quoted by Insurance Journal regarding “ransomware” by insurance companies. The full story is available here.

R.J. Lehmann, senior fellow at the think tank International Center for Law & Economics, said he believes a ban could have the opposite intended effect and encourage more attacks on high-value targets.

“…a ban on ransom payments would be likely to shift hackers focus to the highest value targets where an interruption would do the most damage to society,” Lehmann previously told Insurance Journal.
