There's a lot to take apart in the recently leaked Conti ransomware playbook. After a disgruntled member of the ransomware-as-a-service group leaked it in August, people immediately started combing through it to gain insight into this threat actor.

But few people spent more time with it than David Liebenberg and Azim Khodjibaev, who were part of a Cisco Talos team that translated the entire paper, by hand, to English. Azim and Dave join Talos Takes this week to discuss what they learned from the project, and how attackers' human sides are starting to show.
