Ransomware: Attackers, Defenders, and FBI’s Perspective

Cybersecurity Master Class: Episode 2

Ransomware attacks are dominating the cyber threat landscape. As a low-risk, high-reward activity, we’re bound to see more attacks against all types of organizations. What can your company do to avoid becoming a victim? And what should you do if you’ve already been attacked?

In our 2nd session of Cato’s Cybersecurity master class series “Ransomware: Attackers, Defenders and FBI’s Perspective,” SSA Doug Domin, of the FBI, and Etay Maor, Sr. Director Security Strategy at Cato Networks, will answer these questions and also explore:

  • The history of ransomware attacks and types of extortions ransomware groups utilize
  • How to operationalize security frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK
  • Insights from FBI findings, and how to get help if you’re already a victim
  • Tips – from ransomware groups themselves – on how to avoid attacks!
