Sec 302: Preparing, Detecting And Responding To 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.

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.

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.

Stop phishing & ransomware-aanval


Cursusduur: 2 dagen

Leer hoe u phishing en ransomware kunt stoppen en herstellen van een aanval

Cursus Introductie

Ransomware is niet langer een bedreiging, maar eerder een duidelijk en aanwezig risico voor bedrijven van elke omvang. Ransomware-aanvallen zijn de afgelopen twee jaar toegenomen. Het gevraagde losgeld is ook gestegen. Veel grote organisaties met geavanceerde IT-infrastructuur en een aanzienlijk aantal geschoold beveiligingspersoneel zijn ook geïnfiltreerd en gedwongen om miljoenen dollars/euro’s losgeld te betalen.

Dit toont aan dat, ongeacht hoe robuust uw IT-infrastructuur is, ransomware op iedereen of elke organisatie kan worden gericht. De belangrijkste redenen hiervoor zijn dat de meeste aanvallen phishing gebruiken om de payload binnen organisaties te krijgen en iedere organisatie gebruikt e-mail.

Deze tweedaagse diepgaande training is bedoeld om organisaties helpen in te zien met informatie over ransomware en te helpen bij de voorbereiding op een ransomware-aanval. Het zal organisaties kunnen helpen om te weten wat ze moeten doen als ze worden aangevallen en correct en snel reageren op de aanval.

Deze cursus gaat verder dan het standaard advies dat vaak aan organisaties wordt gegeven; het is bedoeld om beheerders en beveiligingsingenieurs te leren hoe ze meer bescherming kunnen creëren door de vele aanvalsroutes te onderzoeken en te leren hoe ze het risico van elk kunnen verminderen.

Course Duration: 2 days

Learn How To Stop Phishing & Ransomware And Recover From Attack.

Course Introduction

Ransomware is no longer a threat, but rather a clear and present risk to businesses of all sizes. Ransomware assaults have increased in the last two years. The ransom requested has risen as well. Many major organizations with sophisticated IT infrastructure and a significant number of skilled security personnel have also been infiltrated and forced to pay millions of dollars in ransom.

This demonstrates that, regardless of how robust your IT infrastructure is, ransomware can be directed at anybody or any organization. The major reasons for this are that most attacks employ phishing to get the payload inside organizations, and every organization uses email.

This two-day in-depth course is intended to educate organizations with information on ransomware and to assist them in preparing for a ransomware assault. It will assist organizations in knowing what to do when they are attacked and responding correctly and quickly to the assault.

This course goes beyond the standard advice given to organizations; it is intended to teach administrators and security engineers how to create greater protection by examining the many attack routes and learning how to reduce the risk provided by each.
