Antonio Crespo, Consultant at Security Risk Advisors, and Vas Rajan, CSO of CLS Bank International, will be discussing the “Ransomware Resilience Playbook:”

The impact of Ransomware can range from being merely a nuisance to causing significant production downtime, depending on how well you PREVENT, DETECT, and RESPOND. We will discuss the common challenges faced while fighting ransomware and offer a multi-tiered strategy to reduce the attack surface, minimize the blast radius of an infection, and insulate critical systems. We will present actionable technical recommendations, critical success factors for communication and reporting, and discuss how the principles of a Ransomware Playbook strengthen overall resilience in critical production environments.

Antonio Crespo is an incident responder with security controls architecture expertise.  His current focus is on endpoint security and he has recent experience battling and containing ransomware in various environments.
