I just created a video about AppLocker and how it can make companies more secure. The video is in Norwegian (Sorry to our english readers). My goal with the video is to get companies to focus more on client security. Two days ago we could read about a hospital in Hollywood that was taken offline due to Ransomware. The attackers demanded $3,6M.
Ransomware is more and more common and we need to start protecting our environments. We can not only rely on antivirus and firewalls. We need to step it up. I believe that AppLocker is a technology that most of us should apply in order to enhance security. Even the Rob Joyce at NSAs Tailed Access Operations says that application whitelisting makes the job for Nation State hackers much harder.
I will follow up this video with a blogpost on how to secure the AppLocker configuration even more and the explain the different way hackers bypass it.
The video I created is here:
Stay secure and start using AppLocker!
