Top 10 Myths and Misconceptions about Ransomware

2021 was “the year of ransomware”. But so were 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 – and so far 2022 is not very different. Ransomware is no longer a problem discussed only in the cybersecurity and tech communities – it is now a regular topic in mainstream media headlines and executive board meetings.

 So why is ransomware such a menace, and why can we not seem to get rid of it? One of the reasons is that we seem to miss the continued evolution of ransomware – we keep preparing for the last war. Ransomware in 2022 is very different than ransomware in 2017, yet we still treat it the same way.

Roy Correa, Enterprise Field Engineer will help you to learn more about:

  • Ransomware evolution and what we need to un-learn to effectively combat it
  • The most common myths, misunderstandings, and misconceptions about ransomware and the threat actors behind it
  • The most effective tips to become more cyber resilient and prevent security incidents from turnininto catastrophic breache

Zero Trust and Microsegmentation – Easier Than You Think

Zero Trust has got to be one of the most talked about themes in cyber security.  While the term means different things to different people, there are two things that can be agreed on:  it’s a journey worth taking and microsegmentation is a key pillar of that journey. The next question always is how do you get started?Regardless of the sophistication of ransomware, the end goal is always the same:  get in through a vulnerability and move laterally through your network.  Join this presentation as we help peel back the layers to provide you simple steps to protect yourself from these threats that include:

 

  • Gaining visibility to where you are the most vulnerable
  • Closing risky ports
  • Leveraging tools you already have in place without adding layers of complexity

While the journey can seem intimidating, we’ll help you realize that it doesn’t take a team of 100 or a PhD to deploy zero trust microsegmentation that will protect your organization and keep ransomware at bay.

Continuous Security Validation and You: a tale as old as epoch time

With Incident Response as the new normal, ensuring that our systems and processes support that effort and threat hunting are working as expected. We will discuss why and how to establish a Continuous Security Validation (CSV) program within your organization. Specifically, how such a program evolves beyond Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) and provides teams a continuous feedback loop to understand their posture and identify gaps as they arise

Security Blind Spots in the Era of Cloud Communication & Collaboration: Are You Protected?

The need to communicate, collaborate and do business on a global level has created a proliferation of cloud based applications and services. Email. Web-based apps. Cloud Storage. Messaging platforms. CRM. Digital Apps and Services. Organizations continue to add new cloud channels to support their business needs. But with new channels come new security blind spots that must be addressed.

In this session we’ll discuss:

  • The (yet) unsolved challenges of email security – the main channel of targeted attacks
  • Digitization and remote working have forged a new frontier, positioning the web browser at the front line of cyber attacks.
  • The rising threat of cloud collaboration and the growing risk of content-borne attacks
  • Cyber attack trends in the collaboration channel ecosystem

…And we will walk three use cases, their challenges and their deployments.
