LockDown 2022: 3 Ways Desktops are a Threat Actors Best Friend & What You Can Do

Presented by

Nick Cavalancia, (Microsoft MVP)

About this talk

It’s no secret that cyberattacks need a foothold within your organization. And given Microsoft holds that an attacker sits undetected on your network for a median of 146 days, there has to be a reason beyond “they just such an amazing hacker.” In reality, there are plenty of ways your Windows desktops actually **help** the bad guy continue their malicious activities that result in stolen data, encrypted systems, and compromised environments. So, how are threat actors taking advantage of your Windows desktops, and what should you do to stop them? In this lively webcast, join Microsoft MVP, Nick Cavalancia, as he discusses: • Why threat actors love Windows endpoints • 3 examples of how endpoints are used within a cyberattack to the benefit of the threat actor • Ways you can lockdown your desktops to reduce the attack surface and thwart malicious actions
