The Era of Ransomware, Cyber Extortion and Nation State Attack w/Demos

Cyber extortion has reached new proportions, including ransomware attacks such as WannaCry of May 2017, and SamSam affecting major hospitals in 2016. Considering the payoff, cybersecurity experts expect these attacks to only increase. While stories made public provide limited knowledge of initial attack vector or details, this session presents real cases of cyber extortion on financial firms and high net worth individuals, including hacking techniques for full network compromise and deployment of ransomware kits. The second part of the presentation will focus on Nation state attacks from Asia with malware called PlugX, and operation Cloud Hopper that exfiltrated data from major MSP providers around the globe. 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.
