2023 Nastiest Malware

Presented by

Tyler Moffitt - Sr. Security Analyst at OpenText Cybersecurity

About this talk

The past year has seen a steady increase in the number and sophistication of malware attacks. Ransomware has been the most prevalent type of malware, with cybercriminals increasingly targeting businesses and organizations. Criminal actors in the ransomware sector have come up with new “business models” and ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) is dominating. Ransom payments have reached all-time sky-high levels. Elite ransomware authors appear to have concluded that profit sharing and risk mitigation are top contributors to their consistent success and reliable evasion from authorities. Malware payloads are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect, and we expect their tactics to be ever evolving. Join cybersecurity expert Tyler Moffitt as he examines the year’s biggest cybersecurity attacks and learn which malware and ransomware threats pose the biggest threat to businesses. Key Takeaways - Coverage into the most successful and headline grabbing ransomware. - Deep dive into Botnets and tools that enable ransomware to be devastating. - Efforts by worldwide policing entities to stop these criminals. - Learn essential tips for protecting your business with a multi-layered approach.
