In a new op-ed for the the New York Times, Silverado's Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Dmitri Alperovitch argues that America won't be able to defend its way out of the ransomware threat. Instead, the U.S. needs to go on the offensive by conducting cyber operations that makes it more difficult for adversaries to carry out attacks.

"To combat the ransomware problem, the Biden administration has so far taken a two-prong approach: concerted diplomacy with nations harboring cybercriminals and expanded defensive capabilities at home. These are critically important efforts. But to really address the issue, the administration must develop an offensive strategy, too — and fight back."
