Introduction

We joined up with Carbon Black to deliver a security-based Lunch & Learn session on the 27th February. The session was designed to gain a better understanding of modern threats including how threat actors operate, the low cost and effort involved in demolishing a business’ productivity, and how Carbon Black can help protect against these threats.

Set up in the Diverse boardroom, this session was delivered by our Chief Technologist Nathan Manzi who has been a key resource through the development of our Security Operations Centre (SOC). We were also joined by David Dowling from Carbon Black, the Security Business Unit for VMware.

The live demo was performed by Nathan, where he was able to demonstrate a real-world attack involving phishing, zero-day exploitation and ransomware, showing how to detect and block file-less malware using Carbon Black.
