Event Description:

The Enemy Within: Detecting and Mitigating Insider Threats - Varonis
With 100,000 new infections per day, ransomware has gotten the attention of board rooms, IT staff, faculty, and students. Although not typically considered an insider threat, ransomware behaves like an insider, using hijacked accounts to encrypt files on endpoints and file shares.

Unlike most presentations on ransomware, our session focuses on ransomware as a canary in the coalmine. We believe that ransomware is both a leading indicator of much deeper security issues. Ransomware wants to be discovered and exposes areas within an organization that are vulnerable to even more sinister attacks that can't be remedied with a data restore.
