Embedding agile methodology in security testing to detect and tackle ransomware infections in cloud databases
The attackers are transforming the design of ransomware targeting cloud databases by opting for an agile strategy. Databases, including MongoDB, Elasticsearch, etc., are being infected with ransomware and exploited in the wild to conduct data exfiltration and data destruction. This talk will present a threat landscape of ransomware and botnet infections in the databases deployed for modern applications. The conversation unveils the techniques and tactics for detecting ransomware by opting for an agile methodology to design continuous security assessment and testing procedures. The audience can use the developed open-source tools for detecting ransomware infections in cloud databases to conduct an efficient security assessment of cloud infrastructure using agile testing processes.
