Unfortunately, ransomware is here to stay. Ransomware attacks are becoming more profitable, and ransomware-as-a-service operations continue to lower the barriers of entry for more cybercriminals to launch attacks.
Major attacks like Colonial Pipeline have put ransomware in the spotlight, but it’s not enough to simply be aware of ransomware. Security and IT professionals need to take action and be ahead of the curve to prevent ransomware.
Matt Warner, CTO and co-founder of Blumira, a threat detection and response provider, will discuss what security teams should arm themselves with to win the battle against ransomware. He’ll cover:
- An overview of the current ransomware threat landscape
- Security tools and methods to have in your arsenal to detect signs of ransomware
- Suspicious activity to look for in each step of the ransomware kill chain
- How leaning into IT security fundamentals can prevent ransomware outbreaks
Matt has over 10 years of experience in IT and development, focusing on business strategy, development, compliance, threat detection and penetration testing. Previously, he was Director of Security Services, Development & Security at NetWorks Group, responsible for defensive information security and services.
