Deconstructing WannaCry

Presented by

Deepen Desai Senior Director, Security Research & Operations, Zscaler.& Patrick Foxhoven Chief Information Officer Zscaler

About this talk

There are many theories about WannaCry and your inbox is probably full of emails explaining why you need to buy yet another security product. They’re essentially saying, “What you’ve got isn’t working, so get more of it.” But we believe that WannaCry is a clear indication of how the world has changed. To protect our organizations against such modern threats, we need to rethink the way we connect users to their assets and to each other — without bringing them onto the network. What makes WannaCry a game-changer? Let our security experts show you. Deepen Desai and Patrick Foxhoven will present evidence-based information about WannaCry, so you can discern the truth about this evolving threat. They’ll present details on the initial attack vector, new strains that are emerging and those we are seeing in the Zscaler cloud, and protective actions you can take now. Finally, they’ll discuss how we can more effectively protect against modern threats like WannaCry by rethinking the way we apply security and access controls.
