A Healthy Respect for Ransomware

March 16, 2020 • Monica Todros

Despite the cybersecurity industry’s best efforts, ransomware continues to affect individuals and organizations of just about every shape and size — from mom-and-pop shops, to global organizations, and even municipalities. As the developers of ransomware continue to bring in their ill-gotten gains, they’ve invested in infrastructure and customer service to keep it easy to deploy their wares and collect their loot.

Lorne Hazlewood is a senior information security analyst at BKD LLP. He joins us to share his insights on ransomware, where he thinks it’s headed, and what we all can do to best protect ourselves against it.

This podcast was produced in partnership with the CyberWire.
