19:00 – 19:45 – Kennedy Torkura // Defeating Ransomware Attacks With Security Chaos Engineering

Due to the rapid increase of ransomware attacks in the last year, 2021 was tagged the “Golden Era of Ransomware”. Most ransomware countermeasures recommend backups and runbooks. However, these techniques are seldom verified to ascertain the level of technical efficiency they provide. Furthermore, the human operators who use these ransomware countermeasures rarely have the opportunity to understand how to react to ransomware scenarios.

A more effective way is by leveraging security chaos engineering to overcome the aforementioned shortcomings. By conducting planned experiments, ransomware countermeasures can be crafted as a hypothesis and proven. This approach enables security incident response teams to gain confidence in their technical and organizational skills as well as practice how to operate the ransomware countermeasures.

Nimble Studio is an AWS managed service that is a good alternative to the do-it-yourself approach to building content production pipelines in the cloud. It abstracts the underlying complexity and provides a convenient web portal for both admins and artists to interact with.
You’ll learn about Nimble Studio, its architecture, typical use cases, and typical bottlenecks that it helps resolve. We’ll also talk about a customer who was able to attempt a full-length feature animation film using this service.
