Ransomware Exposed: Key Learnings from Examining 3.5 Million Samples

The first step in the fight against ransomware is to expose it – to explore the different strains, what they have in common and what it is that makes them unique. The team at CyberArk Labs analyzes 100s of new ransomware samples each day and in this webinar, cyber researchers disclose their findings of evaluating more than 3 million samples to-date.

Here’s what is covered:

  • The surge and types of ransomware prevalent during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • How ransomware has evolved over the years to become such a formidable threat, including the role of Bitcoin
  • The kill-chain and path to encryption of today’s modern, dynamic ransomware
  • A review of mitigation strategies and recommendations
