SEC 302: PREPARING, DETECTING, AND RESPONDING TO A RANSOMWARE ATTACK
A comprehensive training on how to prepare your organization to deal with the effect of a ransomware attack.
About Course SEC302 Preparing, Detecting and Responding to Ransomware Attack (4 Days)
Ransomware is the single most serious cyber threat that organizations face today. The financial implications of cybercriminal acts are substantial, as are the monetary damages. Ransomware groups are demanding and receiving millions of dollars in ransom payments. Organizations that are unable to pay the ransom costs are left in the dark. Even if they have paid, they may still have to cope with the consequences of a data breach.
Regardless of the hazards provided by various threat actors, Ransomware may be successfully managed, and the risks of a successful assault are substantially decreased.
This four-day jam-packed technical hands-on training is intended to assist professionals understand the problem of ransomware, what they can do to mitigate it, and how they can leverage current tools and resources to prepare for an attack.
The Training Expectations:
Participants will be able to assess the risk posed by ransomware threat actors to their company and establish an incident response strategy to reduce the impact of an attack. The applicant will understand what mitigations to implement and how to implement them. Furthermore, each participant will be very familiar with the toolkits used by the attackers and can identify and neutralizing them. Assembling their own tools to access, monitor, respond to, and restore operations when they are attacked.
Day 1: Introduction to Ransomware
Day one is an introduction to ransomware and a thorough overview of the various ransomware groups and their tactics. We look at the tooling this group uses and how effective they are. This will help prepare the students for the various practical exercises that will take place in the next three days.
On the last day of training, we will go through various ransomware scenarios and how to deal with them technically. We’ll also take a look at some common mistakes that lead to organizations’ data being encrypted by these malicious programs.
Learn about Human Operated Ransomware (HumOR) and why it works so well. What are the points of entrance into your organization? How does this play a role in ransomware attacks?
Learn about Human Operated Ransomware (HumOR) and why it is so effective. We will show you the entry points into your organization for ransomware. Learn about the various types of malware and tools used by ransomware threat actors and how to detect them. What are the different strategies for protecting your organization’s data from being exfiltrated by these malicious actors?
Hackers have many different tools that they use to gain access and exfiltrate data from their networks. The most common types of attacks are phishing, malware (including ransomware), attacking a vulnerable system such as unpatched systems or those with open ports, social engineering, and brute force login attempts.
Day 2: Preparing to Respond to Ransomware
The first day includes an introduction to ransomware as well as a comprehensive discussion of the main ransomware organizations and their methods. We shall examine the tools that these organizations use and how effective they are. This will assist students in preparing for the numerous practical activities that will take place over the next three days.
We will go through numerous ransomware situations and how to deal with them technically. We will also look at some of the most prevalent errors that cause businesses’ data to be encrypted by malicious applications.
Hackers employ a variety of methods to gain access to and exfiltrate data from networks. Phishing, malware (including ransomware), targeting a weak system such as an unpatched system or one with unprotected ports, social engineering, and brute force login attempts are the most prevalent forms of assaults. Learn about the many types of malware and tools used by ransomware threat actors, as well as how to spot them. What are the various techniques for preventing dangerous applications from infecting your organization’s data?
We will investigate an integrated solution that includes anti-malware, sandboxing, and other controls aimed at controlling ransomware and other threats. We will explore an integrated solution that incorporates anti-malware, sandboxing, and other controls focused on containing ransomware and other malware. The students will learn how to:
- Develop a ransomware mitigating plan.
- Develop a holistic improvement of security using the tools you already have.
- Secure all operating systems, networks, and end users?
- Defend the endpoints devices and users
- Use next Generation Anti-virus/Anti-malware
- Set up a back works and restore system that works.
- Reduce the risk of ransomware by improving the security of your email system
- Reduce the chance of email domain spoofing and prevent phishing attacks
- Implement email encryption/digital signature to stop the impersonation of company staffs.
- Have solutions in place to detect and eliminate potential attack via email.
Day 3: Monitor and Detect Ransomware Attacks
Threat actors using ransomware are not particularly covert in their activities. In a Human Operated Ransomware, a threat actor infiltrates the network and snoops about for weeks or months, learning everything it can about the organization and its network. They then begin exfiltrating data from the network before beginning data encryption. This type of behavior is highly loud, and it may be identified with adequate network monitoring and appropriate remedial action.
The second day is devoted to teaching students how to build up a system and network monitoring capabilities for detecting ransomware assaults in real time. The students will learn how to recognize attack signatures and how to respond while under assault.
Learn how to utilize network traffic capturing tools to collect and read network traffic and search for ransomware signatures.
Discover how to use SIEM, UEBA, and SOAR technologies to log, track, monitor, and respond to ransomware attacks.
Day 4: Respond, clean up and Restore after a Ransomware Attack
What should you do in the event of an attack? An assault consists of several phases. It is critical to take the appropriate action at every given stage to halt the invader. The student will learn how to execute the response that was planned during the preparation phase. The main steps are as follows:
- Respond to the attack and end it.
- Restore or rebuild systems from their present configuration, depending on how far the infection process has progressed.
- Repair the system by reinstalling it and replacing any damaged components.
- Restore data from a previous point in time.
