James Carder, CISO of LogRhythm, Ryan Sommers, Manager of Threat Intelligence and Incident Response, LogRhythm Labs
It's 2:00 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, and you get that fateful call. An employee's laptop was hit by the latest CryptoWall variant. The employee was merely searching for how to solve a computer problem, but within minutes of clicking a link, his files have been encrypted and he must pay a ransom fee to get them back.
Unfortunately, his laptop wasn't the only thing affected. The file shares that he was connected to were also encrypted beyond reach. Other calls start coming in. Files in various department shares are "corrupted" and things are grinding to a halt. Another ruined weekend for the SOC and IT--and likely another payday for the bad guys.
Defending Your Organization Against Ransomware
In this webinar, LogRhythm will look at the business problems surrounding the new and evolved ransomware threat. The webinar will also give you a brief technical overview of how these schemes function and how they can be spotted and responded to early enough in the threat lifecycle to severely limit the potential damage. You'll also be given a framework that you can work through to better protect your organization in the face of this looming menace.
Webinar topics include:
• The early indicators of ransomware
• Automated defenses that you can put in place to thwart the attack
• The steps that must be followed (with robotic precision) to make a mole hill out of the potential mountain.
