Bank fraud, money laundering, and more: signs and sanctions point to North Korea. Awareness grows of how big some very big breaches were (but note--Dropbox wasn't one of the services breached). Ransomware operations look more and more like multilevel marketing. Extortionists look for embarrassing digital exhaust. Big claims for AI make for big claims in court, too. Lost laptops still have sensitive, unencrypted information on them. We hear from the Military Cyber Professional Association.
In today's podcast we review some notes on alleged North Korean involvement in fraudulent SWIFT transfers, and on new US sanctions. We take a look at various corners of the cyber criminal underground, including commodification of both malware and stolen data. Big claims for artificial intelligence are going to involve some big litigation, too. And we hear, again, about the vulnerability of data-at-rest and the importance of encrypting your devices. Ben Yelin from the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland security discusses the potential legal ramifications of a Facebook privacy suit, and Joseph Billingsley tells us about the Military Cyber Professionals Association.
