CISA on running critical sectors during an emergency. Disinformation, phishbait, and rumor. What’s Fancy Bear up to these days? Distinguishing altruism from self-interest.

Show Notes

CISA describes what counts as critical infrastructure during a pandemic, and offers some advice on how to organize work during the emergency. Iran runs a disinformation campaign--apparently mostly for the benefit of a domestic audience--alleging that COVID-19 is a US biowar operation. Intelligence services, criminals, vandals, and gossips all flack coronavirus hooey in cyberspace. Fancy Bear is back. And what would provoke good behavior among thieves? (A hint: not altruism.) Malek Ben Salem from Accenture on mobile tracking and privacy, guest is Thomas Quinn from T Rowe Price on the job of protecting a financial institution.
