Toronto: Fighting Ransomware with Autonomous Response
February 8, 2022 (5:30 PM - 6:30 PM) (EST)
New strains of ransomware are leaving organizations vulnerable – too often, security teams lack the ability to respond proportionately to an attack, leading to cyber disruption across the organization.
Join David Masson, Darktrace’s Director of Enterprise Security, as he unpacks some of today’s most advanced ransomware threats. Learn how Self-Learning AI understands the organization to reveal every stage of a ransomware attack – and takes targeted, autonomous action to stop the threat in its tracks.
This presentation will discuss:
- Recent ransomware threat trends, including double extortion and RDP attacks
- How Autonomous Response takes action to contain an emerging attack, even when security teams are out of office
- Real-world examples of ransomware detected by Darktrace AI – including a novel strain of ransomware on the first day of deployment.
