Sec 302: Preparing, Detecting And Responding To Ransomware Attack


A comprehensive training on how to prepare your organization to deal with the effect of a ransomware attack.

About Course SEC302  Preparing, Detecting and Responding to Ransomware Attack (4 Days) 

Ransomware is the single most serious cyber threat that organizations face today. The financial implications of cybercriminal acts are substantial, as are the monetary damages. Ransomware groups are demanding and receiving millions of dollars in ransom payments. Organizations that are unable to pay the ransom costs are left in the dark. Even if they have paid, they may still have to cope with the consequences of a data breach.

Regardless of the hazards provided by various threat actors, Ransomware may be successfully managed, and the risks of a successful assault are substantially decreased.

This four-day jam-packed technical hands-on training is intended to assist professionals understand the problem of ransomware, what they can do to mitigate it, and how they can leverage current tools and resources to prepare for an attack.

Day 3: Monitor and Detect Ransomware Attacks

Threat actors using ransomware are not particularly covert in their activities. In a Human Operated Ransomware, a threat actor infiltrates the network and snoops about for weeks or months, learning everything it can about the organization and its network. They then begin exfiltrating data from the network before beginning data encryption. This type of behavior is highly loud, and it may be identified with adequate network monitoring and appropriate remedial action.

The second day is devoted to teaching students how to build up a system and network monitoring capabilities for detecting ransomware assaults in real time. The students will learn how to recognize attack signatures and how to respond while under assault.

Learn how to utilize network traffic capturing tools to collect and read network traffic and search for ransomware signatures.

Discover how to use SIEM, UEBA, and SOAR technologies to log, track, monitor, and respond to ransomware attacks.

Day 4: Respond, clean up and Restore after a Ransomware Attack

What should you do in the event of an attack? An assault consists of several phases. It is critical to take the appropriate action at every given stage to halt the invader. The student will learn how to execute the response that was planned during the preparation phase. The main steps are as follows:

  • Respond to the attack and end it.
  • Restore or rebuild systems from their present configuration, depending on how far the infection process has progressed.

Course Duration: 2 days

Learn How To Stop Phishing & Ransomware And Recover From Attack.

Course Introduction

Ransomware is no longer a threat, but rather a clear and present risk to businesses of all sizes. Ransomware assaults have increased in the last two years. The ransom requested has risen as well. Many major organizations with sophisticated IT infrastructure and a significant number of skilled security personnel have also been infiltrated and forced to pay millions of dollars in ransom.

This demonstrates that, regardless of how robust your IT infrastructure is, ransomware can be directed at anybody or any organization. The major reasons for this are that most attacks employ phishing to get the payload inside organizations, and every organization uses email.

This two-day in-depth course is intended to educate organizations with information on ransomware and to assist them in preparing for a ransomware assault. It will assist organizations in knowing what to do when they are attacked and responding correctly and quickly to the assault.

This course goes beyond the standard advice given to organizations; it is intended to teach administrators and security engineers how to create greater protection by examining the many attack routes and learning how to reduce the risk provided by each.

Course Description

Layer 1: Physical Layer

The Physical layer of the OSI model is responsible for converting data packets from the Data Link layer (Layer 2) into electrical signals.  Learn how to keep data safe at the physical security layer and allow only unauthorized access and restricting access to critical servers.

Security in the OSI Physical layer comprises the enterprise’s physical and site security concerns, which includes all these aspects:

  • Access Control
  • Power management
  • Environment management
  • Smoke & Fire suppression
  • Backups
  • Protection of the physical layer infrastructure

Layer 2. Data Link Layer

The Data Link layer is primarily concerned with physical addressing, line discipline, network topology, error notification, ordered delivery of frames, and flow control. Devices such as switches and bridges work at this level. Understand the security threats that may occur at this level and how to mitigate them. Some of these threats are:

  • Gratuitous ARPs or ARP spoof
  • MAC flooding
  • Spanning tree attack

Layer 3: Network Layer

At this layer there are many protocols Internet Protocol (IP) responsible for routing of data and network information. It is important to understand how attackers could misuse any of these protocols and gain access or spoof your network. Lots of security attack that can happen here includ:

  • Packet sniffing and DoS attacks.
  • ICMP attacks or ping of death.
  • IP Address Spoofing
  • Routing attacks
  • Back Hole/Selective Forwarding

Layer 4: Transport Layer

This is where the TCP protocol resides. To understand the security issues relating to the TCP and UDP protocol suite is essential to cybersecurity. Some security threats that occur at these levels include the following:

  • Endpoint identification
  • Unauthorized Internet access
  • SYN flood
  • Ping of death
  • Smurf Attack

Layer 5: Session Layer

The session layer manages the establishment and tearing down of connections. These connections could require authentication, authorization, session restoration, tokens etc to set up. During this process it is possible for the session to be hijacked through a man-in-the-middle attack.

You will learn security elements in this layer and how to protect your data and including:

  • The fundamentals of using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Socket Layer (TSL)
  • Secure Shell (SSH)
  • Kerberos
  • Internet Protocol Security (IPSEC) to protect communication at the session layer.

Layer 6: Presentation Layer

The presentation layer ensures that the communications passing through are in the appropriate form for the recipient. Some of the services at this layer are data conversion, character code translation, compression, Encryption and Decryption.

  • Malformed SSL requests.
  • Attacker could use SSL to tunnel HTTP attacks to target the server.
  • SSL Hijacking

Layer 7 Application Layer

The application layer is the hardest to defend for several reasons. For a starter, the layer is the most accessible and the most exposed to the outside world through Port 80 (HTTP) or Port 443 (HTTPS). Secondly, it provides services to application procedures that are located outside the OSI layer. According to Gartner 70% of successful attacks occurred at this layer

Application layer attacks include:

  • Denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) attacks
  • HTTP floods
  • SQL injections
  • cross-site scripting
  • parameter tampering
  • Slowloris attacks.

Learn about security issues involved with web application technologies such as HTTP, HTML, and JAVA) and other application security flaws involving some following:

  • Authentication/Access Control
