About this talk

Industrial organizations are on alert as bad actors see critical infrastructure as low hanging fruit for attack. Ransomware variants, phishing emails, wiper malware and more show up as tactics used to disrupt operational environments. As digital transformation increases the number of users, devices and applications connecting to the network. This has increased the number of staff accessing critical infrastructure like meters, sensors and control systems from their remote offices. For many organizations, this positively affects efficiency. It has also increased risk and elevated the importance of a cyber-readiness plan for industrial organizations. During this webinar, security strategist Geri Révay will discuss the: - Ransomware tools and techniques used to disrupt critical infrastructure including ransomware-as-a-service - Common tactics targeting remote access to critical infrastructure and the protection needed to prevent unauthorized access to your most critical systems - Benefits of using threat intelligence to improve situational awareness on known and unknown threats to enable identification, relevance, response and patching as necessary.
