Will is speaking on the topic of Rise of Human-Operated Ransomware.

Ransomware isn’t a new phenomenon. In fact, it’s been plaguing organizations for years, preying on weaknesses in security systems to steal data and compromise systems. The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center reported 2,084 ransomware complaints from January to July 31, 2021. This represents a 62% year-over-year increase.

We’ll dive into recent trends in ransomware—looking at where it is now, where it’s going, and steps you can take to protect your organization. From detection and prevention strategies to effective response procedures, we’ll detail what you can do to secure your systems before attacks happen, and what you need to do during an attack to contain and mitigate damage.

You’ll learn:

  • Tactics and techniques used by ransomware operators during an attack
  • Evolution of security testing requirements to help mature ransomware resiliency
  • Specific strategies to mitigate and detect a ransomware attack
