About this talk

Wherever we turn it feels like the news is all COVID-19 all the time. Many of us are feeling stressed and overwhelmed and attackers know it. At Microsoft, we've seen an increase in the success of phishing attacks, one of the common vectors for malware and ransomware infections. Rather than inventing entirely new exploits, attackers are pivoting their existing infrastructure for ransomware and other malware delivery tools to COVID-19 focused lures to get us to click. In this talk, we'll share insights into how the attackers have shifted their lures and provide recommendations for improving detect and response times to reduce the likelihood these attacks will work.
