Watch cybersecurity experts from two AI-powered organizations, Adam Mansour of ActZero.ai and Zach Atya of Measured Insurance, as they discuss the implementation of AI to combat Ransomware across its lifecycle.
BEFORE: Zach focuses on using AI to scale DarkWeb monitoring to be able to predict attacks before they begin, and the actuary science processes that power this. And the use of AI to underwrite and price cyber insurance policies using this data.
Both our speakers cover the proactive steps we can take to reduce the likelihood of Ransomware landing in the first place - for those companies without an AI engine to help defend them. Focus on controls, hardening, using MFA, email protection (DMARC, etc.), and other items that Measured looks for in the underwriting process.
DURING: Adam covers the use of AI in the detection of Ransomware when it does land, and how AI enables the sub-second responses required to overcome it.
AFTER: Adam covers some breach reporting / disclosure elements, teases initial steps to recovery, Zach covers how insurance can offset the cost…the support that cyber insurance provides during an incident and claims process.
They acknowledge that AI is not a panacea, but highlight the method in order to:
Enable others to leverage it in their defenses against Ransomware
Provide resources on it, to improve incident response
Provide an offer so companies at a less mature stage of cybersecurity readiness can take advantage of these solutions that include AI
