Alberta: Ransomware in Focus: How AI Surgically Contains the Threat

Alberta: Ransomware in Focus: How AI Surgically Contains the Threat

October 27, 2021 (4:30 PM - 5:30 PM) (MDT)


In the immediate aftermath of a ransomware attack, executives too often face a difficult dilemma: either pay a ransom, or shut down critical systems and services. In today’s increasingly complex digital ecosystems, the collateral damage that ensues from ransomware attacks can be broad-ranging and destructive, with organizations taking days, weeks, or even months to recover. But what if there was another way out – a way to surgically contain ransomware in its earliest stages, without disrupting normal business operations?

Join David Masson, Darktrace’s Director of Enterprise Security to learn how Self-Learning AI is helping thousands of organizations fight back against ransomware. We’ll discuss:

  • The impact of ‘double-extortion’ ransomware and ‘ransomware-as-a-service’
  • Real-world examples of ransomware detected by Self-Learning AI
  • How Self-Learning AI responds proportionately to ransomware, thanks to its deep understanding of an organization’s pattern of life
