About this talk

Join John Petersen, Chief Information Officer, Heffernan Insurance Brokers, and Saumitra Das, CTO and Cofounder of Blue Hexagon to learn about Ransomware, the single largest malware impacting a new organization every 14 seconds, and what security leaders can do to avoid falling victim to this cybercrime. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, an insurance industry survey observed a 47% increase in the severity of ransomware attacks and it accounted for the majority of the 87% of reported incidents and 84% of insurance claims payouts in H1 2020. Ransomware has now evolved from “encrypting the data on the machine until the ransom is paid” to more nefarious tasks, including disruption-ware, exfiltrating sensitive corporate data, all in attempts to disrupt business and force payment. And, with remote work on the rise, exploitation of remote access and user devices increases corporate exposure to ransomware even more. For security leaders, this rapid surge and complexity presents a number of dilemmas: How should you adjust and prioritize to face this challenge and be cyber resilient in the future? How to evaluate and adopt the latest detection and response tools and techniques, such as deep learning, zero-hour detection, threat kill-chain analysis, and response automation and orchestration. What you'll learn from this webinar: ● Key concepts of ransomware ● Trends observed in hundreds of ransomware attacks as well as new trends on the intent of ransomware actors ● Critical priorities for creating a cyber-resilient organization ● What should be your Ransomware toolkit ● New AI technologies and tools to cut through the rapidly changing threat landscape
