Completely avoiding the ransomware tidal wave

Presented by

About this talk

Enterprise security teams have experienced more than their share of change throughout the past few years. But while many have adapted to the curveballs thrown their way in the form of a remote workforce, the tools needed to facilitate productivity, and the resulting proliferation of data, security is still lagging. These changes have ushered in a tidal wave of ransomware impacting organizations – both large and small – across industries. The problem? Security teams are still married to early strategies founded on detecting threats versus focusing on initial access. The shift to remote work has made the web browser the new office, and threat actors have caught on. Today’s ransomware gangs have pivoted as quickly as organizations to take advantage of modern work by leveraging a new class of cyber threats – Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT). HEAT attacks are aimed explicitly at web browsers and use various tactics to evade multiple layers of detection in today’s security stack. So, is it possible for security teams to shut the door on these threats before they place? Can ransomware finally be removed from the scroll of concerns security leaders have? Is there a way to make security effective again without getting in the way of modern work? What’s the role of Zero Trust in all of this? Guest speaker Heath Mullins, senior analyst at Forrester, sits with Mark Guntrip, senior director of cybersecurity strategy at Menlo Security, to answer those questions – and yours – during this upcoming discussion.
