Ransomware-as-a-Service and Extortion-as-a-Service Turn Ransomware into Big Business

When:  Dec 2, 2020 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET)

There’s a renewed focus on ransomware from threat researchers and security teams — and rightly so. Ransomware has grown exponentially, and threat actors have upped their game, with proliferation of both frequency of attacks and types of malware being used. Adding to the urgency, ransomware groups have become keenly adept at dividing the supply chain between them—giving them an extreme competitive advantage in terms of how quickly and shrewdly they can attack victims.

Ryuk, Sodinokibi, and Valak are just a few of the operators who have evolved into Ransomware-as-a-Service providers, with the platforms “hosting” ransomware operations.

In this webinar we'll explore Valak as a case study of a real-world infection that turned into a targeted ransomware incident with ties to a well-known threat group.

Join IBM Security X-Force intelligence officers and incident responders to learn:
  • Critical propriety X-Force threat intelligence on ransomware operators: how they’re evolving and insight into their tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs)
  • How that intel should inform your security strategy
  • Best practices organizations should employ now to defend against and recover from ransomware attacks.
