Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many have succumbed to the various forms on ransom-based malware. Whether it is Cryptolocker, Wannacry, Crysis or the many other forms on ransomware, numerous organizations assume they are not at risk and end up having to respond to a ransomware attack without proper preparation. Full of firsthand case studies and lessons learned during my time handling numerous ransomware-related incidents over the past year to help attendees better prepare for a potential ransomware attack.

During this session we will discuss:
- How does ransomware work, what are some of the more well-known variants (i.e. Petya, Dharma, etc.)?
- How to I prepare my organization in the event that I get hit with ransomware?
- How do I develop a playbook around responding to a ransomware related incident?
- What indicators of compromise should I look out for?
- What do I do if my systems are infected with ransomware? Do I pay the ransom? How do I recover?
