Anatomy of an Attack: Ransomware Theory and Practice

About the Webinar

Ransomware has become one of the most pervasive and insidious cybersecurity threats. Today, criminals don’t even need much in the way of technical skills to carry out attacks, since multiple ransomware-as-a-service programs are available on the dark web. Moreover, the damage from a ransomware attack can be not just expensive but even catastrophic; some businesses never recover. Therefore, every IT team needs to build a strong protection strategy before it’s too late.

This session will walk you through the phases of a ransomware attack and a real-life example. Then, we’ll detail how to detect an attack in its early stages and tackle it along the kill chain. By the end of the webinar, you’ll understand how to build an actionable strategy that will make your organization more resilient against ransomware attacks.

During this session, we’ll cover:

  • Introduction to ransomware anatomy
  • NIST-aligned actionable strategy
  • Real-life example of an attack flow
  • Better-together solution mapping for a layered defense strategy
