Episode 30: Ransomware Reckoning & More

Ransomware steps into the spotlight on this episode of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast. We start with Andrew N. taking a dive into a ransomware attack that affected clinical trials for COVID-19 treatment on our latest Ransomware Reckoning segment. Then we segue into cybersecurity headlines.

Andrew H. & Kevin discuss a Europol survey that shows victims tend not to report ransomware attacks, and why that’s a bad thing. And completing the ransomware trifecta, hear how your organization may face hefty fines for paying a ransom to the wrong folks.

In other headlines, hear why Google Chrome’s latest update may help curb phishing. And finally, learn about a Swiss cyber breach that led to stolen university employee paychecks.
