Ransomware is a financially motivated crime. The goal is to inhibit business system in order to extract a payment. Historically, there’s been plenty of financial gain from ransoming data as it resides in traditional onPrem systems. So the question is, will there be evolutionary pressure on attackers – forcing them to evolve tactics?
In this talk I will be demo-ing strategies threat actors might employ to affect availability of business data in the cloud.
I will be showcasing:
– How ransomware can target IaaS environments, specifically in AWS
– Highlighting the signals ransomware in the cloud might exhibit before encryption
– Ways attackers can compromise availability of S3
– Strategies for threat detection and risk mitigation of your AWS environment
