The most valuable lessons come from failure. As one of the world’s leading MSSPs and Incident Response providers, Secureworks sees first-hand some of the most interesting cases of security failures, the impacts they have and the chaos that can ensue. It’s the job of Secureworks’ Counter Threat Unit (CTU) to keep track of threats and trends, and in this session Chris Yule will share insights from some of the devastating ransomware attacks Secureworks has witnessed, and how all users and software developers have their part to play in protecting their own organisation.
As a leading security service provider, Secureworks protects some of the most well-known organisations in the world. As Director of Threat Research Capability in Secureworks’ Counter Threat Unit, Chris Yule leads efforts to collect and store raw intelligence that can be used to protect Secureworks’ customers. This includes collection and analysis of malware, indicators and insights from Incident Response engagements, partnerships, original research and open source. Prior to joining the CTU Chris was a security consultant who helped advise large organisations how to improve their security posture.
