SC22ST3 - Solutions Theater Presentation: The Reason Why Ransomware is Really HEATing up - Sponsored by Menlo


Oct 11, 2022 10:10am ‐ Oct 11, 2022 10:30am


Description

When entire workforces went remote in 2020 because of the global pandemic, organizations pivoted quickly to new business models by migrating apps and services to the cloud to enable the anywhere, everywhere workforce. That's resulted in business users spending an average of 75% of their workday working in a browser. These same digital enhancements, however, also ushered in widespread transformation that expanded attack surfaces and created new opportunities for cyber miscreants, giving rise to Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT), which are used as beachheads for initiating ransomware, data theft, and account takeovers. Learn why traditional security solutions are failing against ransomware and
how organizations can upgrade their security stack.

Learning Objectives:
  • Why HEAT attacks are the next-class of browser-based attacks taking advantage of today's remote and hybrid workforce and how they're evading existing security defenses
  • Learn why traditional security solutions are failing against ransomware and how organizations can upgrade their security stack
  • Solutions to keep in mind and how organizations can secure themselves against HEAT attacks and ransomware

Speaker(s):

  • Chris Diaz, Cybersecurity Sales Engineer, Menlo Security
