Ransomware ATT&CK and Defense
Ben Hughes, Ronny Thammasathiti, Daniel Chen, Nick Baker, Esther Matut

This hands-on training workshop will walk attendees through hunting for Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) frequently used by ransomware adversaries. From Reconnaissance and Initial Access to Exfiltration and Impact, attendees will be exposed to a compressed ransomware attack lifecycle. Workshop TTPs will be mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework, and it will incorporate offensive operation elements such as adversary emulation, but while emphasizing purple and blue teaming. We will explore the endpoint and network logs left behind by attack TTPs and how the blue team can utilize such logs and defensive tooling to detect and disrupt the attack.
