During the pandemic, ransomware attacks are on the rise. Following the World Health Organization’s announcement of a public health epidemic in February, hackers started running campaigns based on the virus, according to Microsoft. Microsoft saw an eleven-fold surge in similar threats. The FBI’s official ransomware statement warns users against paying the ransom. There’s no guarantee that the hackers will be able to recover your data. For these reasons, this conference, organized by Russian cybercrime fighters Group IB makes excellent viewing and we’d highly encourage you to attend this event.

Ransomware insights from the field: experts discuss personal experiences handling threat actors.
To be aware of ransomware’s status as a major threat is one thing but knowing how to effectively fight against it is an entirely different ballpark. There is a growing demand among both cybersecurity professionals and business leaders for anti-ransomware playbooks to avoid becoming the next headline. Meeting this demand is not easy, however, as threat actors have become adept at changing tactics quickly and frequently.
It comes down to DFIR and CTI specialists to thoroughly analyze each ransomware incident, extract the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used, and share this information in the hopes it can make a difference.
Join our virtual event hosted by Oleg Skulkin, Lead Digital Forensics Analyst at Group-IB, where he will discuss the main TTPs used by ransomware operators in 2020 and then invite fellow peers to talk about their personal experiences in handling ransomware incidents.
Their aim is simple: to expose ransomware’s movements and make it harder for them to conduct attacks. At the end of the event, you’ll have a chance to ask your burning questions to reinforce your anti-ransomware strategies.
