Ransomware has increased in both velocity and sophistication in the past year, with over $20B in reported damages in 2020. Today, cybercriminals are bypassing defenses by hiding in encrypted traffic and trusted third-party applications and are increasing their leverage using double-extortion and DDoS tactics. The Zscaler ThreatLabz research team monitors data from over 150 million daily blocked attacks, uncovering insights into the mechanics of these attacks and how to prevent them.
Join Director of Threat Intelligence Brett Stone-Gross and Director of Malware Labs Nirmal Singh as they walk through emerging ransomware trends, frequently exploited vulnerabilities, attack sequences of the top ransomware families, and key strategies to prevent these evolving threats.

The average ransom demand has skyrocketed, largely due to attackers stealing data and using it as leverage—just as they did in the Colonial Pipeline attack. Join Zscaler CISO Deepen Desai and Director of Product Marketing Steve Grossenbacher to learn more about double extortion and how to stop it with comprehensive data loss prevention tools and techniques.

Having the right tools to prevent ransomware means nothing if you don't have the right policies enacted on those tools. Many organizations have decades-old rulesets in place that expand their attack surface unnecessarily, giving attackers freedom of movement in, out, and through their networks. Join Zscaler Field CISO Brad Moldenhauer as he discusses common areas of risk and how to improve your policies to defend against ransomware attacks and improve your zero trust posture.
