Earlier this year an unnamed ransomware group crippled the Colonial Pipeline Company using the DarkSide ransomware. The attack shutdown the largest oil distribution system in the US. It also resulted in oil and gas shortages up and down the East Coast for several days. But it also brought to the fore the growing sophistication of cyber criminals and the risks they pose to critical infrastructure and increasingly connected supply chains.

Prepare for a webinar that will shine a light on to the DarkSide ransomware operations. Join Cyborg Security's Brandon Denker and Mike Mitchell as they provide insight into the attack against the Colonial Pipeline, and suggest strategies for earlier detection through threat hunting.

Topics covered during the webinar will include:
