Episode 36: What to Expect When You’re Expecting Cyber Threats in 2021
Start 2021 off with a bang – or a Ping in our case – as we podcast our way through some cyber threats to look out for in the new year. Andrew & Kevin go through predictions from top security experts at Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs, Sophos, Barracuda, and WatchGuard. What did they find? Plenty of network security hazards face us in 2021, from evolving ransomware and phishing campaigns, to continued remote work vulnerabilities.
And for a more in depth look at WatchGuard’s predictions, check out Episode 34.
In headlines, the news about the FireEye/SolarWinds/federal government/Russia cyber breach keeps coming. And then, learn why fear may not be the right factor in cybersecurity training. Finally, hear about a new type of swatting that uses smart doorbells and home security cameras.
Oh, and Happy New Year!!
