About this talk

Ransomware is on the rise. In fact, since the pandemic, ransomware attacks have seen a spike of 148%, according to TechTarget. Cybercriminals are looking for ways to commit untraceable crimes with high rewards. As well as loss of data, trust and reputation, a ransomware attack could mean huge monetary loss, and as such, leaders are looking to prevent the ransomware attacks, rather than simply responding to them when they happen. Organisations can look towards web application firewall (WAF) and WAF-as-a-Service (WaaS) to provide cloud-delivered total application security to protect their APIs and web applications. Many IT organisations struggle to secure multiple web applications, especially as they transition to hybrid and remote work. DDoS attacks in particular can disrupt organisations as they disrupt websites and applications and distract security teams from even greater threats. Join this panel to learn how WAF and WaaS can be a part of your organisation’s ransomware defence strategy to fend off application-targeted strikes, volumetric DDoS attacks, and more. Join us and learn: - How to prevent the upload of files infected with ransomware and other malicious attacks to your web applications with WAF or WaaS - How to prevent ransomware communication with its command and control systems - How to fend off DDoS attacks that threaten application and network layers - How DDoS attacks are often used to mask other attacks against applications Speakers: - Diana Kelley, CTO at Security Curve - Scott Treacy, Consulting Solution Engineer at Barracuda - Reza Alavi, Senior Security Consultant at Adarma Secu - Eoin Fleming, Head Of IT Security at KBC Bank
