PRESS RELEASE

 

Cyren Malware Researcher to Speak at Infosecurity Europe 2018
on ‘Fileless’ Ransomware

 

McLean, VA – May 30, 2018 – Cyren (NASDAQ: CYRN), a leader in cloud internet security, today announced that Arna Magnusardottir, senior malware researcher with the Cyren Security Lab, has been selected to present her findings on “fileless” ransomware during an Infosecurity Europe 2018 conference session.

 

Taking place Wednesday, June 6 at 10:40 a.m. in Olympia, London, the session is titled “Fileless Ransomware: How it Works and How to Stop It.” The rising use of super stealthy “fileless” ransomware to evade detection and complicate mitigation is a new and notable development in the ongoing game of cat-and-mouse between malware authors and security systems. Magnusardottir’s session will provide attendees an end-to-end look at fileless ransomware attacks and show how they fit into the current ransomware landscape. Using real-world examples, she will cover the range of techniques in use, common attack vectors, and strategies for defense for IT and security managers.

 

Based in Iceland, Magnusardottir joined Cyren in 2015. She received her diploma in computer science from Reykjavík University.

 

Visit Cyren in booth F220 during Infosecurity Europe June 5-7.
