Lares September Ransomware Webinar Series

Lares would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a new series of webinars on ransomware. The most common tactics hackers use to carry out ransomware attacks are email phishing campaigns, RDP vulnerabilities, and software vulnerabilities according to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). In 2021, ransomware remediation costs globally rose from an average of $761,106 in 2020 to $1.85 million. That means that the average cost of recovering from a ransomware attack is now 10 times the size of the ransom payment.

This September, we will be presenting three webinars on various ransomware topics ranging from technical detection to executive program management. The webinar details can be found below. Please note, you must register for the specific webinars you wish to attend. Registering for one does not register you for all webinars.

Presenters:

Lee Kagan, Director, Adversarial Collaboration, Lares

Anton Ovrutsky, Adversarial Engineer, Lares

Ransomware Preparedness for the C-Suite

Date: Wednesday, September 29th, 2021
Time: 1pm to 2pm EDT

Abstract:

Digital extortion in the form of ransomware is becoming more commonplace. Through the exploitation of weak IT and security controls, inaccurate or poorly documented processes, and a lack of business continuity and disaster recovery testing, attackers are exploiting the most valuable area of the business – the data of your company, your partners, and your customers.

So how should modern executives assess the organization’s ability to mitigate and recover from a ransomware attack? Executives must look inward at their current people, process, and technology investments to formulate the best course of action given existing financial, technological, and staffing constraints.

Join Lares COO Andrew Hay to learn how to assess your policies, deployed controls, and restorative capabilities to better prepare your organization for the next targeted ransomware attack in this free and highly interactive webinar.

Ransomware Technical Deep Dive

Date: Wednesday, October 6th, 2021
Time: 1pm to 2pm EDT

Abstract:

When it comes to ransomware, there are a seemingly endless number of unknowns. For example, what TTPs are the most active ransomware samples leveraging right now? What breadcrumbs are they leaving to help Blue and Purple Teams detect and mitigate an incident? What can I do with the detection information to prevent an increase in exposure?

These are just a few of the questions that this final session in our 3-part Ransomware webinar series will help attendees understand. Join the Lares Adversarial Engineering team as they dissect what the attackers are using to gain a foothold on your environment and encrypt your sensitive data.
