How to Detect and Prevent Ransomware Attacks

Presented by

Winny Thomas, Principal Security Architect at Versa Networks

About this talk

Millions of computers get infected every day by known and unknown threats. In recent years, corporate networks have seen a rise in a new class of malware known as ransomware which has infected several hundreds of thousands of devices of employees and in turn impacts multiple enterprise businesses. Each successive year, Ransomware deploys new techniques to lure victims, infect them and have their files encrypted. A ransom is then demanded to free the encrypted files. Join Winny Thomas, Principal Security Architect at Versa Networks, as he explains 10 recent examples of ransomware that infected corporate networks. Winny will explore how these attacks employed heavy obfuscation, anti-analysis, persistence and other interesting techniques to move laterally within a network once it has managed to infect a device within the network. He will then explain how you can help your company detect and prevent ransomware attacks at various stages of their lifecycles. In this webinar, you’ll learn: - The widescale negative impact ransomware attacks place on enterprise-level companies all over the world - How to diagnose the complete lifecycle of a ransomware attack at any point during its evolution from its initial stages to propagation - A framework for a threat response against known and unknown ransomware attacks
