Kaspersky says his company is a bystander that's been hit in the Russo-American political crossfire. The US Navy continues to investigate the USS McCain collision. Justin Harvey from Accenture on what it’s like to be on an incident response team. Luke Beeson from BT on the challenges such a large organization faces protecting themselves and their clients.
