Deconstructing the Ransomware Landscape: Conversation with a Real Threat Actor

Ransomware is a major problem, and it’s not going away. To understand it, we must understand why threat actors turn to it—and how it can be stopped. The best way to do that is to chat with the masterminds behind these attacks.

In mid-August, we identified a new attack where a Nigerian threat actor offered a million dollars in bitcoin to anyone who was willing to turn on their employer and deploy DemonWare—a type of ransomware— on their servers. Since then, we’ve had multiple conversations with this person, learning who he is and why ransomware is his attack of choice.

Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, September 8th at 3:00pm ET where Director of Threat Intelligence Crane Hassold will discuss the ransomware problem and why it’s increased in the last few years. We’ll walk through how easy it is to deploy ransomware, how this exact threat was detected, and why we can expect to see similar attacks in coming months.

You’ll also hear directly from the source himself, as our Nigerian threat actor discusses his life of cybercrime. This is a webinar you won’t want to miss.
