The Threat Dictionary – Ping Podcast – Episode 18

Episode 18: The Threat Dictionary

We know classes may not be in traditional session right now, but we thought we’d provide a virtual cybersecurity lesson plan. On Episode 18 of Ping: A Podcast, Andrew and Kevin highlight our very own Cyber Threat Dictionary. They discuss a sampling of terms, including classics like phishing and ransomware, and lesser known threats like rogue APs. You’ll learn what these threats are. And hear how to identify them and stop them from stopping you. Arm yourself with cyber threat knowledge from A to Zero-days.

And don’t forget to visit the home of the Cyber Threat Dictionary, our blog to learn even more about network security.

In our cyber headlines segment, we talk about cyber vulnerabilities at temporary hospitals during the coronavirus outbreak and the implications of the FCC’s decision to open 6GHz wifi. And then our headlines go into the toilet, a smart toilet that is.
