Doesn't It make You WannaCry: Mitigating Ransomware on a Windows Network - David Branscome (BSides Tampa 2019) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Doesn't It make You WannaCry: Mitigating Ransomware on a Windows Network
David Branscome
BSides Tampa 2019

Abstract: The Petya and WannaCry ransomware attacks were some of the most destructive cyberattacks we've seen - and could be the start of a whole new attack methodology. In this session, we'll talk about how the attacks started, how they spread, and what the impact of the attack was on the target organizations. We'll also describe the recovery process that many organizations had to perform. Finally, we will identify very specific recommendations to help defend against this type of attack, as well as discussing some of the typical issues that prevent an organization from implementing the controls that would prevent this type of attack.

Bio: David works as a security architect at Microsoft, helping Microsoft partners learn and deploy the latest Microsoft security technologies in Office 365, Windows 10 and Azure. He's worked at Microsoft for 10 years in a variety of roles, including 6 years in the Microsoft Consulting Services and Premier organizations, supporting customers in the Commercial, Federal, State and Local Government, and Higher Education customers as they deploy and manage on-premises, online and hybrid Microsoft technologies. David holds numerous certifications, including CISSP, GCWN, CCSP, CySA+, PenTest+, Security+ and several dozen Microsoft certifications. David has been married for 27 years, has 4 children (3 boys and a little girl) and lives in Apex, NC.
