BE20230705  Shortest Disruption Banner 2 EN

This article is based on round table " The shortest disruption"
organised by Pointury on July 5, 2023. 

Network defenders often look at ‘dwell time’ – the time between an adversary gaining access and achieving their objectives – as a key metric in understanding threat and risk. Based on Secureworks’ direct observations through incident response engagements, the average dwell time for post-intrusion ransomware attacks has remained fairly constant at four and a half days in 2022 compared to five in 2021. This means that on average an organization has almost a whole working week to detect and contain an intrusion before the lights go out. Understanding how ransomware operators act once inside a network is the key to exploiting this ‘detection window’. 

Coen Bakkers, Leading Incident Response Expert at Secureworks will explain us how ransomware operators work and how to reduce the time between detecting a security breach and fixing the issue.
