with Jason Silva, Sr. Solutions Architect
Despite every organization and every security vendor on the planet being keenly aware of ransomware over the last few years, attackers and attacks are increasing in number, frequency, complexity, and sophistication.
In short, the bad guys are (currently) winning.
Having a well thought out strategy for the prevention of ransomware should be top of mind for any security professional – as the old saying goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. And one of the best ways to prevent ransomware is to simply look at the most current attack techniques, looking for critical junctures where attacks can be halted in their tracks.
In the first 1-hour session of the first ever three-session Ransomware Summit with Ultimate Security IT, hear from Jason Silva, Senior Solutions Architect from BeyondTrust, as he looks at the evolution of ransomware, diving into some common ways infiltration occurs, and some effective strategies for prevention.
Jason will use Trickbot and Ryuk as the ransomware attack example, and examine how, without proper prevention techniques, the combination of these attacks can take hold and circumvents many security methods already in place. He’ll also discuss how the tendency to focus on the last part of an attack, though common, is not the right approach.
Looking at the cyberattack chain, Jason will focus in on several mitigations listed in the MITRE ATT&CK Framework, explaining how proper prevention techniques align with these, including:
This real training is a free event jam packed with technical detail and real-world application. The Ultimate IT Security’s Ransomware Summit was a one-day, three-hour event made up of three 1-hour sessions – focusing on ransomware prevention, detection, and response. Join one session, or them all – but be sure to check it out!
