Hosted By: F5 Networks & Carahsoft
Location: Alpharetta, GA
Join F5 Networks and Carahsoft for a hands-on lab to learn about one of the most significant cyber-threats to date: ransomware. Experts agree that a multi-faceted and holistic strategy is the best defense. We will discuss actionable steps you can take to identify, prevent, detect, respond, and recover from a ransomware attack. We will also discuss the three primary attack vectors used to deliver ransomware and how F5 solutions can be directly mapped to each of these. While there is no silver bullet or magic wand to completely eliminate the threat, F5 is a trusted advisor that can help you significantly reduce ransomware risk.
In this lab you will learn how F5 can:
Reduce ransomware risk by providing policy-based, intelligent visibility to encrypted threats such as ransomware
Provide the ability for your existing tools to see threats and provide mitigation
Perform decryption off-box, allowing the security tool to focus on what it does best (mitigation) and not waste valuable resources on decryption
Reduce ransomware risk by leveraging multiple threat feeds to detect malicious URLs and IP addresses
Register and attend to receive 4 CPE credits through (ISC)2.
*Please note that in order to participate in the hands-on lab, you must bring a laptop with unrestricted Internet access.
