7Safe Talk Title: Ransomware Forensics: An incident responder’s perspective
Incident responder, Ian Howard, will draw on experience from real incidents to examine ransomware attacks; from initial infection with live demonstrations of attack techniques including drive-by-downloading, to possible data recovery with forensic methods. How to take a proactive approach to not just ransomware but malware and cyber breaches in general will be discussed by gaining a better understanding of cyber threat hunting.
Ian has over 13 years in digital forensics and incident response. Initially a forensic investigator in Hertfordshire Constabulary, progressing to be their Investigation Manager, before moving to 7Safe. In his current role, Ian delivers incident response, threat hunting and digital forensic investigations and is a registered expert witness. He also designs and delivers practical training in digital forensics and cyber security.
