Cyber extortion has reached new proportions, including six-figure ransomware payments. Considering the easy and quick payoff, cybersecurity experts expect these attacks to only increase. But stories made public provide limited knowledge of initial attack vector or details pertaining lateral movements. This session presents real cases of cyber extortion on corporate and high net worth individuals, many conducted by LIFARS Incident Response team, including hacking techniques for full network compromise and deployment of ransomware kits. This session also presents cases that are currently under investigation by the FBI and Secret Service.
