Leveraging ZeroTrust Segmentation to Mitigate Ransomware

18 Oct 2022
Level 3, Room GW2 | Sands Expo and Convention Centre
Cyber Attacks and the Challenges of a Holistic Response

Ransomware attacks continue to disrupt businesses and in other cases what appears to be Ransomware is a distraction from attacks looking to compromise Intellectual Property. Stopping 100% of breaches isn't possible, but zero trust segmentation offers protection to prevent initial infections from becoming catastrophic. Attendees will leave this session understanding how to thwart Ransomware and similar attacks by leveraging software-based zero trust segmentation to restrict adversarial lateral movement. We will also share details on how attendees can leverage free open-source tools to perform attack simulation and assess how much difficulty an attacker would have in navigating their networks.
