About this talk

Zero-day exploits serve as a master key for cybercriminals to launch crippling cyberattacks which are only increasing in frequency. In fact, research from Google's Project Zero shows that as of November 2021, a total of 57 zero-day exploits in the wild have been discovered, compared to an average of 22 exploits in past years. In the past year, eSentire’s Threat Response Unit (TRU) detected and responded to a significant increase in zero-day exploit activity in client environments that included defending against critical Exchange vulnerabilities ProxyLogon, ProxyShell, the REvil attack against Kaseya and most recently, mass exploitation of Log4j vulnerabilities. Join eSentire and (ISC)2 on March 22, 2022 at 1:00p.m. Eastern/10:00a.m. Pacific as key findings from new research on zero-day attack patterns are shared including how to triage vulnerabilities, and the response capabilities needed to effectively tackle future zero-day attacks. We’ll also examine: • Factors contributing to the rise of zero-day attacks • Notable Vulnerability analysis of SolarWinds, ProxyLogon, ProxyShell, and Kaseya VSA • Opportunity windows for zero-day exploits (n-day attacks) • Recommendations on how you can defend against zero-day exploits
