Colonial Pipeline was recently the victim of a devastating attack that shut down U.S. operations across the East Coast, threatening an already tenuous economic recovery effort.
This attack against critical infrastructure by the DarkSide Ransomware gang highlights the urgent need for better ransomware prevention, detection and response.
DarkSide is a relatively new ransomware strain that Cybereason first detected in August 2020. DarkSide operators follows the RaaS (ransomware-as-a-service) model and engage in double extortion where they exfiltrate victim data prior to encryption with the threat to make it public in an effort to ensure victims pay the ransom demand.
Join us live as we breakdown this attack and show how Cybereason fully detects and protects against the DarkSide ransomware.
