The Stages of a Ransomware Attack: How AI Responds at Every Step

Presented by

Brianna Leddy, Darktrace Director of Analysis

About this talk

Organizations continue to be targeted by increasingly sophisticated ransomware. The speed at which these attacks escalate forces security teams to take drastic and heavy-handed action to stop threats — often with broad-ranging and serious implications. As digital infrastructures become more interconnected, the knock-on effects of ransomware will continue to worsen. It’s time to shift to a proportionate response strategy – stopping the attack, while allowing your business to operate as it should. Join Brianna Leddy, Darktrace Director of Analysis, as she unpacks the stages of a ransomware attack, step by step, illustrating what impact each one might have on an organization with and without Autonomous Response.
