The EVIL-ution of Ransomware 2.0: Top Protection Tips


  • Palo Alto Networks

About This Webinar

A Single Infection is all it takes. With ransomware groups turning up the pressure on victims and demanding higher pay – can your organization afford to take the risk?

According to the Unit 42 Ransomware Threat Report, in 2021, the average ransom demand in cases we handled increased 144% over 2020. On top of that, there was an 85% increase in the number of victims who had their names and other details posted publicly on dark web “leak sites” that ransomware groups use to coerce their targets. Multiple extortion tactics like these are an indication of the future of the ransomware threat landscape.  You need to ensure your protection techniques have evolved to protect against the latest techniques.

In this technical session, NetSec Security Evangelist, John Harrison, and Kyle Wilhoit, Director, Threat Research, Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 Threat Intelligence, will provide insight into how ransomware attacks have evolved in 2022 and key recommendations using ML-Powered NGFW and SASE solutions to keep your organization protected.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
