Ransomware continues to evolve as perpetrators develop new exploits with consequences that can be dramatic and immediate. New super strains go beyond holding files hostage. In Austria, ransomware was used to take over a hotel’s keycard system so guests were locked out of their rooms. Researchers have developed strains that can alter programmable logic controller (PLC) parameters with the potential to throw major mechanical systems into chaos. New defense approaches are needed because organizations can no longer rely on backups and conventional security solutions to protect them. Join CrowdStrike Senior Security Architect Dan Brown as he explains why conventional security isn’t working, and reveals recent innovations – including new Indicator of Attack (IOA) behavioral analysis methodologies – to successfully detect and prevent even the most complex “file-less” ransomware exploits.
Attend this CrowdCast where Dan will discuss:
● The challenges of defending against dangerous new variants, such as Russian roulette-style ransomware that encrypts data in stages, or the use of “known good” programs such as the WinRar data compression tool to implement ransomware
● Real-world examples of ransomware in action and how different approaches fare against each type of exploit
● How the CrowdStrike Falcon cloud-delivered platform can defend your organization against new super strains of ransomware that use sophisticated malware-free tactics
