DarkSide, Pt. 2- Registration Page


Earlier this year an as-of-yet unnamed actor targeted the Colonial Pipeline Company using the DarkSide ransomware. The attack crippled the largest energy pipeline in the United States, causing oil and gas shortages in several states. While a great deal of the media has focused on the DarkSide ransomware in their coverage, the reality is that the actors leveraged a wide array of tools and exploits to carry out one of the most devastating ransomware attacks in history. Understanding these tools is critical to understanding how to defend against these types of attacks.

Prepare for an in-depth and uncut technical deep dive with Cyborg Security's Austin Jackson, into the actors' tools and TTPs and how organizations can hunt and detect them in their own environments!

The webinar will provide technical insight into the following topics:
