Topic: Understanding WannaCry Ransomware & The Enemy Within

The WannaCry ransomware attack is just the latest in an epidemic of assaults on organizations and individual’s data. Pay our your data is deleted. Bigger moats and better walls are no longer keeping attackers at bay when they’re determined to get to your most critical assets that are almost always found in unstructured data.

Ransomware is the ‘canary in the coal mine,’ it wants to be found. But what about state actors, malicious employees or hijacked user accounts which try not to be noticed as they attempt various attack and exfiltration vectors? We will go beyond ransomware and discuss the assault methods used and review kill chain methodology to better equip your organization in the onslaught of attacks on your organization.
