Your Money or Your Data: The Era of Cyber Extortion

Cyber extortion has reached new proportions, including six-figure ransomware payments. Considering the payoff, cybersecurity experts expect these attacks to only increase. But stories made public provide limited knowledge of initial attack vector or details. This session presents real cases of cyber extortion on corporate and high net worth individuals, including hacking techniques for full network compromise and deployment of ransomware kits. Many of the cases discussed are currently under investigation by the FBI and Secret Service. Attendees will walk away from this session with knowledge of the tools and strategies needed for elevating their cyber resilience.
