Though malware has continued to evolve, its delivery mechanism has remained a constant: According to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 94 percent of malware was delivered by email.
In recent years, the explosion in ransomware attacks has rightly taken center stage when it comes to malware analysis. Evaluating the more than half a million instances reported in 2019, security firm Emsisoft estimates an aggregate ransom demand exposure of more than $6.3 billion.
But security leaders have more than ransomware to be concerned about. Botnets, keyloggers, spyware … the methods cybercriminals leverage to infect devices and networks are many — and mitigating them requires both strategic and tactical thinking.
As a security professional, it’s imperative to know what you’re up against and how to adapt your security strategy to thwart these attacks. Join CyberRisk Alliance for a two-day eSummit Oct. 7-8 featuring thinkers and leaders in malware analysis who will share their knowledge on topics like:
- Understanding the new ransomware strains that are emerging in the wild.
- Assessing new developments in mobile malware threats and protection.
- Shoring up your last line of defense by creating a “human firewall.”
