About this talk

The rapid shift to remote work in 2020 saw adoption of public cloud skyrocket. Organizations quickly saw the benefits of public cloud from SaaS based applications, to the agility that PaaS provides. While the pandemic dominated the headlines last year, 2021 will likely go down as the year of ransomware. While the economics of ransomware have been a proven, profitable business, the shift to the cloud opens new possibilities. Join security researcher Kat Traxler and Vectra AI VP of Product Marketing Joe Malenfant, as we step through a scenario using real-world examples on how criminal organizations are targeting cloud deployments and gaining initial access to cloud platforms. You’ll learn about: - The telltale signs of ransomware behavior before encryption - How ransomware can target IaaS environments, specifically against AWS - 4 ways attackers can compromise availability of S3 - Strategies for threat detection and risk mitigation of your AWS environment
