$1,000,000 Global Ransomware Lockdown: Chronicles of a Rapid Responder
Ransomware is one of the most devastating cyber-attack methods that exists today, and these attacks are seemingly getting more difficult to prevent and recover from. Does your organization have a plan for when the lights go out, data and systems become unavailable, the phones stop working, or the manufacturing floor comes to a crashing halt? Join the Schneider Downs cybersecurity team as they share a real world experience of a massive ransomware attack that shut down a global business operation for many weeks. The Schneider Downs team will provide a stunning first-hand account of the realities of a well-coordinated and crafted ransomware attack from an international threat actor that has eluded law enforcement for many years.
This presentation will:
· Give the audience an inside look at how a ransomware attack really works
· Analyze the tactics, techniques and methods used by the threat actors
· Discuss controls that could have prevented or detected the malicious actions
· Provide accounts of lessons learned by those experiencing their first incident
· Discuss the benefits of proper planning and coordination with law enforcement resources
