Black Hat Webinar: New Trends in Ransomware Response

Black Hat webinar brought to you by ExtraHop.

Ransomware has evolved. The emergence of ransomware-as-a-service and franchise models has fueled exponential growth in the cybercrime industry. Criminals are leveraging double and even triple-extortion, threatening to expose stolen data in addition to locking it up. All too often, ransomware is the last stage of a longer-term attack, where criminals lurk for weeks or even months in victim and supplier networks.

Your response matters. In this fast-paced webinar, seasoned ransomware experts share their techniques for effectively containing and eradicating the adversary. We’ll show you the latest ransomware in action, with videos and screenshots from actual cases, and discuss strategies for monitoring and recovering from a ransomware attack. We’ll also cover mistakes to avoid and tactics for thwarting the stealthiest new threats. Join us and learn the critical steps you can take to keep a minor incident from becoming a major catastrophe.
