Key note: Targeting the low hanging fruits: how ransomware groups operate

Ransomware attacks have been hitting just about every type of business and organization such as governments, municipalities, universities, hospitals, corporates, banks, insurance firms and etc. However, the encryption of the data is the last phase of the attack, it is preceded with intelligence collection, social engineering, phishing, malware and network compromise (and more..). In this webinar we will dive into the tools and techniques used by ransomware attacks, look at how easy it is for threat actors to identify vulnerable targets, use frameworks to understand the threats and get tips on how to avoid these types of attacks - from the attackers themselves!
