2016 Q1 Malware Review: Ransomware Trends and Tactics

During the first quarter of 2016, the PhishMe Intelligence team generated 612 Active Threat Reports detailing waves of phishing emails that delivered malware to victims around the world each day. What stood out the most was the proliferation of encryption ransomware. It has grown to become the most common type of malware utilized through soft targeting and massively distributed attacks. This webcast will discuss the spread of ransomware and why it is so successful. Join Brendan Griffin, Senior Threat Intelligence Analyst, PhishMe to learn about:

  • Ask the Healthcare Industry: Phishing is a Pain Recorded: Oct 10 2018 34 mins
    Alexandra Wenisch, Information Security Program Manager, Cofense
    A third of all breaches target healthcare companies. But while phishing defense is an industry must, new Cofense research shows that healthcare lags behind other sectors in recognizing and reporting phishing. If you're in healthcare, or any other industry for that matter, how do you know if your organization is ready for an attack?

    In this presentation, we discuss the current state of healthcare's resiliency against phishing threats. Cofense expert Alexandra Wenisch shares her insights on:

    - Year-over-year healthcare trends and cross-industry comparisons
    - Simulation response rates relative to current/active threats
    - Healthcare’s response to active threats
    - Key areas for improvement
  • Dark Reading: The Real Impact of a Data Security Breach Recorded: Oct 3 2018 62 mins
    Cindi Carter and Josh Bartolomie
    A major breach of your enterprise's critical data could potentially threaten the life of your business. In addition to the potential loss of customer data or intellectual property, a breached company  faces public scrutiny, IT security overhauls, potential lawsuits, brand damage, and loss of customers. In this webcast, experts discuss the real losses associated with a breach, both in the data center and in the business –and how an effective data breach response program can help mitigate the damage.
    When you attend this webinar, you will:
    • learn what factors cause the price of an incident to ratchet up higher and higher
    • learn how much cyber insurance can (and cannot) protect you from the costs of a breach
    • learn how much a good incident response team can save your organization
    understand the long-term impacts a data breach can have on your organization and how to prepare for them
  • Into a Dark Realm: The Evolution of Ransomware Recorded: Sep 20 2018 38 mins
    Darrel Rendell, Principal Intelligence Analyst, Aaron Riley, Intelligence Analyst, at Cofense
    While ransomware might not be dominating the headlines, it is still a persistent threat that continues to evolve. Weaponized emails still make it past the gateway and ransomware infections happen. Today, variants of ransomware offer “customer support” offered by the cybercriminal for communication and negotiation with the victim. Ransom amounts can vary depending on the perceived wealth of the victim. Ransomware operators also offer flexible payment methods using forms of payment other than Bitcoin and even structured payment/decryption plans. As ransomware evolves, so must your response to these threats.

    This session will help you understand:

    - The impact of what happens if your users are not trained on email scrutiny
    - The multiple effects it can have on your enterprise
    - Techniques to mitigate incidents and bolster your network’s protection against future attacks
  • SCMag 20/20 Webinar: The Ransomware No-Win Scenario Recorded: Aug 23 2018 31 mins
    Brendan Griffin, Threat Intelligence Manager
    Ransomware is a vicious type of malware. Not only can it potentially destroy your data and perhaps even your hardware, it can wreak havoc on your business operations. Ultimately the question a company has to face, of course, is do you pay the ransom for the chance to recover your system or not. If you don’t pay, you potentially could lose everything. If you do pay, you potentially could still lose everything, as well as possibly break various laws. This 20/20 editorial webcast with ensuing special report takes a deeper dive into your options and why you might well face a no-win scenario. It’s the Kobayashi Maru test – do you follow the rules or make your own?

  • Building a Collaborative Phishing Defense Recorded: Jul 24 2018 60 mins
    Lindsay Drabwell, Head of Membership Services EMEA, (ISC)², Darrel Rendell, Mollie Holleman,
    What’s keeping you up at night? Ransomware? Phishing? Spyware? Malware? Data Breaches? A malicious email typically opens the door to those threats. Organizations spend great energy (and budget) preventing users from falling prey, but threat actors continue to find ways to get past automated controls, staying one step ahead of artificial intelligence tools. Cofense believes solving the phishing problem is more than just awareness: it’s about empowering humans to become instinctual nodes on the cyber defense network and feeding their real-time intelligence to security teams for immediate action.

Security leaders and their teams are challenged with doing more with less. Integrated solutions and automation to fight ransomware enables analysts to be more efficient and accurate in the operation.

  • How Prairie Dogs Improve Incident Response Recorded: Apr 28 2017 42 mins
    Jim Hansen, COO, PhishMe
    No matter how quickly you’re detecting and responding to breaches, it’s still not fast enough for your customers’ and clients’ peace of mind. Even companies with the best solution in place are only doing half the job. The other half? Training your people.

    The average time to find and respond to a breach?
    147 days. (That’s not a typo.)

    So, how do you get your organization better – and faster? And how do you train and empower your employees to do better than 147 days? In this presentation, we will explore how to harness the common detection techniques used by prairie dogs (yes, prairie dogs) and lessons we can learn from them in the domain of cyber security. HINT? It’s called Collective Security.

    Prairie dog calls contain specific information as to what the predator is, how big it is and how fast it is approaching.
