Title: The History and Current State of Fileless Malware

Malware-free and fileless malware attacks are on the rise. Research shows that almost a quarter of organizations worldwide were victims of fileless malware attacks in the past year.

In this presentation, we’ll discuss the various mechanisms used by attackers and review effective approaches for detective & response.

You’ll learn:
• About fileless malware techniques, such as PowerShell and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
• Why these attacks are hard to detect & mitigate
• How you can successfully detect & respond to such attacks
