A black market for insider information. Cisco studies data breaches. The Internet as a threat actor's R&D infrastructure.

Show Notes

In today's podcast, we hear about how criminals are recruiting company insiders, and how the black market trades insider information for illicit speculation. Cisco studies the costs and causes of data breaches, and the security industry offers reactions. Jonathan Katz from the University of Maryland describes searchable encryption. Vadim Vladimirskiy from Nerdio explains IT as a Service. The Internet seems to serve, again, as an R&D resource for threat actors. This time it's ISIS and commercial drones, but there's a lot out there for sale and trade.
