Ransomware: Defending Against the Dark Arts of Modern Cyberwarfare

Presented by

Aaron Poulsen, Senior Director, Hyperproof & Drew Williams, CISO / ThreatRecon Practice Lead, Guidacent

About this talk

Ransomware attacks negatively impacted one in three global organizations in 2021, according to research from IDC. The average organization spent $2.66MM in clean up and response per incident. Recent events have raised the stakes even higher. The cyber security industry's most influential voices are warning companies that the international cyber threat level is especially elevated right now. Given the current situation, and the rise in cyberwarfare activities, organizations in all 16 critical infrastructure sectors should be prepared to mitigate the risk of a cyber attack and the impact of a compromise. Chances are, most organizations can quickly identify a few immediate actions to reduce their attack surface, but may not have a complete picture of their attack surface or the imminent threat that is likely already in their systems. In this webinar, join cybersecurity expert Drew Williams of Guidacent and Sr. Director of Compliance Aaron Poulsen of Hyperproof for a live discussion on how to take a proactive and pragmatic approach to cyber defense. They will cover topics including: Trends on ransomware attacks on U.S. targets since 2014 and what the West has learned about state funded threat actors are expanding their hostilities via cyber. Steps to take to assess and validate your security posture Focus areas and tactics for shrinking your attack surface and mitigating the risk of a compromise from a denial of service attack like a Ransomware event Talking points to use with your execs to get more resources for your security program
