Show Notes

In today's podcast we follow the story of alleged Russian hacking of US think tanks and election databases (allegations Russia dismisses as American provocation). US Federal and state officials think about securing November's vote. Mississippi organizes a new public-private cyber security coalition. SWIFT discloses new money transfer fraud attempts. New ransomware strains are out in the wild, and a Trojan is impersonating Google Chrome. Dr. Jim Kent from Nuix shares his thoughts on insider threats, and we welcome Yisroel Mirsky from Ben-Gurion University, our newest Academic and Research Partner. And, producers, rethink your B-roll: we take a look at the best stock picture of a hacker yet.
