About this talk

Ransomware has grown from virtually non-existent only a few years ago to causing billions of dollars in damages in 2017. Fortunately, ransomware has very distinct behavior compared with other kinds of malware--it tells you that an attack has taken place. From a defender's point of view, being alerted to an attack is far better than having it stay undetected in your systems. In this presentation, you will learn: • Common elements of today's malware strains • Effective strategies for combatting ransomware • What malware defenders can learn from ransomware
