In a recent SecureWorks engagement, 98.5% of the 3,477 commands executed by threat actors were native to the Windows operating system.
PowerShell is a popular tool that Microsoft has been including with the Windows OS since 2009, but malicious PowerShell use is rivaling ransomware in popularity with threat actors. Security products focused on preventing endpoint threats are often not enough to differentiate legitimate from malicious PowerShell use. Join us for a discussion of why PowerShell is so risky, how SecureWorks researchers identify PowerShell threats, and how you can defend your organization.
SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit - Special Operations Researcher, Lee Lawson, will discuss how security leaders and practitioners can leverage his experience to reduce the risk and understand how to defend against PowerShell threats in your organizations.
