2017 Maersk ransomware attack

2017 Maersk ransomware attack
This assignment is what we call a ‘post-mortem’ of an attack. One of the best things that security professionals can do as they attempt to reduce their attack surface is to learn from the mistakes of others. This assignment will prepare you for the follow on assignment in Module 6, which will be more in-depth.For this module’s assignment, you will conduct a post-mortem of the 2017 Maersk ransomware attack utilizing the Lockheed Martin Corporation’s Cyber Kill Chain methodology. You should look at each part of the cyber kill chain and be able to articulate the actions of the attackers as they progress through each step of the kill chain. Focus on the following areas:
How long did the attackers spend in each phase?
What was the overlap between phases?
Can you identify where Maersk should have been able to interdict the attackers?
What were the attackers after?
What kind of attackers were these? Hacktivists, Transnational Criminal Organization, Nation-State?
Prepare a one- to three-page report accompanied by a PowerPoint briefing presentation (no more than 5 slides) for your supervisor and his executive leadership team to help them better understand, discuss, and assess the attack and anticipate where you think your organization might be vulnerable to a similar type of attack. Your report and PowerPoint briefing slides should complement each other. The intent is to help focus the leadership team of your business/organization on the issues you feel they need to pay them most attention to, providing your rationale and methodology, as needed, with appropriate recommendations.This report (and the briefing slides) can be organized and formatted in any manner you think best conveys the information and best informs the senior leaders about the attack, keeping in mind that most senior leadership will not be able to understand in-depth technical jargon. You must keep this information accessible to leaders without the same technical acumen you possess. While relying on the reading and presentation materials available from this module will be essential, some amount of additional research may be necessary and desired. This report (and briefing presentation) will further inform and should be used for your final proposal due at the end of Module 7.
