Dec/Nov 2021 Holiday – Meeting Recap

By nick.moseley

Human-operated ransomware is a large and growing attack trend that represents a threat to organizations in every industry, and is different from commodity ransomware. These “hands-on-keyboard” attacks target an organization rather than a single device and leverage human attackers’ knowledge of common system and security misconfigurations to infiltrate the organization, navigate the enterprise network, and adapt to the environment and its weaknesses as they go.

Brian Gancherov will be covering the evolution of Human Operated Ransomware, how to protect against it, initial indicators of threat actor activity and some real-life anonymized case studies on what can happen when you don’t have the people, processes and technology to prevent it.

Nick Moseley will present on how Microsoft solutions in endpoint protection can help in ransomware defense.
