Vmcb tr lp thumb 600x600 v1 rev 01

In this webinar we look at how the ransomware-as-a-service market has helped lower the entry barriers for prospective cybercrime entrepreneurs, creating a larger number of ransomware attacks against legitimate organizations. We also look at a ransomware attack, The SunWalker Incident, to get an understanding the motivations, capabilities and possible future actions of its players. Join experts from eSentire and VMware Carbon Black as they take a deep dive into the SunWalker incident and what it can teach us about the ever-changing world of cybercrime.

Key Insights:

  • How we view cybercrime operations being supported by four pillars: tools, expertise, reputation and organization
  • How cybercrime organizations are operationalizing and their preferred methods of choice
  • Dive into how the SunWalker incident exemplifies a modern and all-too-common attack scenario that combines multiple tools and techniques
