Spooky Cyber Threats – Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast Episode 5

Episode 5: Spooky Cyber Threats, A Roundtable

Halloween is fast approaching and that means things that go bump in the night are top of mind for many. Unfortunately in the cyber world, there is no shortage of scares. For Episode 5 of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast, we  tackle these online terrors head-on, with the help of experts from two top security companies. Kevin and Andrew welcome Douglas Santos, Security Strategist with FortiGuard Labs and Daniel Kremers, Sales Engineer with SonicWall as they discuss cyber threats like ransomware, fileless malware, DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks, zero-day exploits, IoT (Internet of Things) vulnerabilities, and much more. In this roundtable discussion, we also find out what cyber hazards they find most scary and get some tips on protecting yourself and your organization against the bad guys.

You can learn more about threat monitoring by SonicWall Capture Labs and FortiGuard Labs, and get educated on the latest cyber terminology at our very own Threat Dictionary.

Also in this episode, Firewalls.com Network Engineer Alan Steady stops by for our Engineer’s Minute with some easy to implement tips that’ll better protect you against cyber threats. Learn more about the network security services our certified engineers offer.

And in our Headlines segment, you’ll hear about how much cyber attacks are costing small businesses, a key factor many neglect when it comes to cybersecurity, and how Americans did on a recent cybersecurity quiz (and play along with the podcast to take the quiz yourself).
