Abstract:

In today’s world, it’s imperative for organizations of all sizes to have an online presence to succeed in business. But there’s a risk to always being connected – banks and financial institutions are prime targets for cyber attacks. Recent ransomware strains like Petya and WannaCry demonstrate how business can be brought to a grinding halt by encrypting critical data.

During this session, you’ll hear about some of the most interesting attacks the Arctic Wolf Networks concierge security engineers have seen over the past year.
You’ll also learn why a robust SOC-as-a-service with human augmented machine learning is critical to bolster your defenses against the most advanced of threats.
