Recorded


Speakers

  • Jimmy Graham, Director of Product Management, Qualys Inc.
  • Mark Butler, Chief Information Security Officer, Qualys Inc.

A major ransomware attack using a leaked NSA exploit known as “WannaCry” has hit approximately 150 countries in May of 2017. About 200,000 infections globally have been detected and the attack, which uses the WannaCry (WanaCrypt0r 2.0) ransomware, continues to spread.

WannaCry utilizes the ETERNALBLUE exploit targeting newly disclosed vulnerabilities (MS17-010). Once leaked, it took only 28 days for this exploit to be used in a full-scale cyber attack. Organizations that scan for vulnerabilities only monthly or less frequently can still be at risk.

During this webcast Jimmy Graham, Director of Product Management at Qualys, and Mark Butler, Chief Information Security Officer at Qualys, discuss how to rapidly identify assets at risk to WannaCry Ransomware.

This webcast includes a live Q&A.

You will learn how to:

  • Patch and implement other mitigations for WannaCry
  • Detect and get full visibility on impacted assets for prompt remediation
  • Institute threat-prioritized remediation processes to mitigate current and future risks
