Stop Ransomware (and Other Attacks) in it's tracks with Pause-Process

  • Mick Douglas
  • Wednesday, August 15th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

This talk is for both managers and techies. Mick created Pause-Process to allow defenders time to react to malware and other attacks. In this talk, we'll cover the punishing realities of just how fast attacks can happen, and how having the ability to temporarily pause a suspicious application allows defenders better time investigate. In short, this allows a more nuanced approach to incident response... and should change your playbooks! You won't want to miss this!
