Cyber Hat Trick: How Ransomware Gangs Exfiltrate, Encrypt & Exploit – Matt Cauthorn – ESW #237

Exfiltrate. Encrypt. Exploit. In 2021, ransomware attackers moved beyond exfiltrating and encrypting data to extract a ransom, working to compromise the victim’s build server to introduce an exploit through which to launch large scale attacks. VP of Cloud Security Matt Cauthorn joins Security Weekly to walk through the lateral movements these attackers use to pull off the Cyber Hat Trick.
