Hi Cybrary fans!
April cyber kill chains bring May ransomware course campaigns. 🥷
We're kicking off a new month with cutting-edge courseware, labs, and podcasts designed to keep you informed and ready to defend your organization against critical cyberattacks!
Calling all blue teamers, red teamers, and everyone in between! Did you know that the financial industry saw a 1,318% increase in ransomware attacks in just the first half of 2021? If ransomware were a country, then notorious financially-motivated threat actor groups like FIN7 would make up the third richest country in the world. As crafty adversaries leverage key techniques to rob our crucial financial and hospitality businesses from millions of dollars worth of data, capital, and productivity hours, now is the time to level up your skills so you can beat them at their own game.
*Stop adversaries in their tracks before they can ever leave a ransom note!*
Here's how you can join the fight against ransomware. We have an exciting new course training series to debut! Aligned to adversary techniques and mitigation strategies within the MITRE ATT&CK framework, our expert-curated threat actor campaigns will give you the hands-on experience you need to enhance your detection methods.
