Over the past few years major crimeware, ransomware and malware campaigns have moved to fileless - 'playing upon 'features ' built directly into popular word processing and document rendering applications, email clients, and functionalities of the Operating System itself as a means to attack and spread. 77% of companies compromised last year were 'hit with a 'fileless ' attack, making them 10x more effective than traditional file-based attacks (per Ponemon). 'Join SANS and Barkly CTO Jack Danahy to discuss:

  • Insights into how these common in-place applications are abused to initiate or further attacks
  • How techniques such as these can lead to malware/ransomware bypassing A/V
  • Strategies for re-evaluating your endpoint security tools
