CASE STUDY: In this presentation, two 20-year security veterans share successful real-world strategies implemented by one of the nation's largest law firms to achieve readiness for ransomware and zero-day attacks.

Within weeks of implementing their new strategies and endpoint defenses, the team members at Cole, Scott & Kissane (CSK) blocked the costly, destructive Emotet malware. They stopped Emotet before it could execute ransomware or damage data and systems, saving their organization money and reputation costs.

In this session, learn the strategies that worked: how the CSK team evaluated threats; strengthened endpoint defense while minimizing the security team's workload; integrated other IT resources into the security effort; and struck the right balance of protection, detection, and response.
