Ransomware Attacks Are Evolving: The Rise of Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats
John Grady, Senior Analyst at ESG | Eric Schwake, Sr. Manager of Cybersecurity Strategy at Menlo Security
About this talk
More and more organizations are moving applications and services to the Cloud, creating a work environment where the office has become a “browser” for employees to access resources remotely. While Software as a Service (SaaS) applications have grown in popularity to meet hybrid and remote work requirements, SaaS applications and Cloud migrations mean an expanded attack surface that organizations are seldom ready to secure.
As organizations struggle through their Cloud migration, cyber criminals are eager to take advantage of occupied security teams and deliver ransomware attacks through Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT). Join host John Grady, Senior Analyst at ESG and guest Eric Schwake, Sr. Manager of Cybersecurity Strategy at Menlo Security as they explore the rise in HEAT and:
- An in-depth look into Menlo’s HEAT security assessment
- What’s driving these HEAT attacks and how they’re evading existing security defenses
- Solutions to keep in mind and how organizations can secure themselves against HEAT attacks
