Exposing the eCrime Ecosystem


Using Threat Intelligence to Get Ahead of Ransomware Attacks

Throughout 2020, enterprise ransomware increasingly threatened organizations in every industry worldwide  — and the threat continues. In the 2021 Global Threat Report, CrowdStrike outlined a vast, interconnected eCrime ecosystem with criminal adversaries existing to support enterprise ransomware operations. Many of these adversaries specialize and work in concert with each other, combining malicious services, ransomware distribution methods and monetization techniques to maximize their overall success and profitability.

In this CrowdCast, you will gain deeper insight into the eCrime ecosystem and learn how to use threat intelligence to prevent your organization from being victimized by ransomware adversaries and their cartels. Using real-world examples and demonstrations, CrowdStrike experts will show you how to better analyze, understand and successfully combat the most sophisticated ransomware threats.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Understand how criminal adversaries have expanded their ransomware activities — and made them even more potent
  • Gain insight on tactics such as extortion, data leak sites and the use of social media, underground forums and messaging apps
  • Learn how adversaries stepped up their development efforts, deploying a variety of inventive new methods to evade detection and confound defenders
  • See and understand how CrowdStrike provides full-spectrum intelligence capabilities that include adversary tradecraft, technical intelligence and digital risk monitoring.
