WannaCry Ransomware: How it Attacks and How to Protect Your Business

17 May 2017

The WannaCry Ransomware epidemic has primarily affected business networks, and has claimed victims around the world in a wide range of industries. Generally, WannaCry comes in two parts. First, it’s an exploit whose purposes are infection and propagation. The second part is an encryptor that is downloaded to a computer after it has been infected.

Kaspersky Lab has teamed up with Comae Technologies to present an emergency webinar for businesses to help them understand and defend against the WannaCry ransomware.

Juan Andres Guerrero-Saade, senior security researcher in Kaspersky Lab’s Global Research and Analysis Team, is joined by Matt Suiche from Comae Technologies to present the very latest information on how the ransomware breaches defenses and the subsequent stages of attack. They independently explain how organizations can determine if they have been infected and the critical actions they need to take to secure networks and endpoints against this threat.
