with Paula Januszkiewicz, Hacker, Enterprise Security MVP, Cybersecurity Expert
Cyber-crime is booming as threat actors seek to exploit the increased online dependency and mass migration to remote working triggered by the global health pandemic back in 2020. Currently, the situation is looking more and more frightening. In the first half of 2021 we have witnessed at least 62% year-over-year increase in ransomware complaints, and it is estimated that the average ransomware payment in 2021 increased by 82% year over year to $570,000.
In this current climate of spoofed domains and cleverly faked emails, demand for digital forensics skills has never been higher. Organizations are wising up to the fact that by discovering how an attacker gained entry to a system, similar attacks can be prevented.
During this session, Paula will show you how to think like a hacker so you can evaluate your infrastructure for exploitable vulnerabilities and how to recover the evidence attackers leave behind.
Join us and become familiar with the most up-to-date Forensics Operations to become aware and well prepared to investigate hackers’ tracks!
