If we’ve given the impression that we’re at the heart of the security world, working with the organisations that spend billions on security – and with the companies that make billions by selling security products – you’d be right. And that puts us in an awkward position. Because we want to make security better for everyone. And sometimes that means speaking some uncomfortable truths.

This episode is the uncomfortable truth episode.

Deep and direct ransomware testing

300 ways to run a ransomware attack!

Deep and Direct Ransomware Testing

SE Labs tested CrowdStrike Falcon against a range of ransomware attacks designed to extort victims. These attacks were realistic, using the same tactics and techniques as those used against victims in recent months.

Test like ransomware hackers

Testers attacked target systems, protected by CrowdStrike Falcon. Our testers in the lab acted in the same way as we observe ransomware groups to behave on the internet.

Attacks were initiated from the start of the attack chain, using phishing email links and attachments, as just two examples. Each attack was run from the very start to its obvious conclusion, which means attempting to steal, encrypt and destroy sensitive data on the target systems.

Some anti-virus reviewers know what they are talking about. Others don’t. Some are just in it for the money. How can you tell which reviews are worth your time?

How to choose anti-virus for your PC and your family

There is no doubt that installing anti-virus is one of the most important things you can do to keep your computer and its data safe.

Which anti-virus?

Everyone tells you that you need it, but which one?

Classic cybersecurity advice always includes a plea to, “install anti-virus” or “use endpoint protection software”. Journalists, bloggers and even governments hand this information out, as if it helps. Most platforms, including Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS, include anti-virus so the question then becomes, “which anti-virus?”
