Show Notes

In today's podcast, we hear the results of the US Government's study of the hack on Ukraine' power grid, and how utilities should protect themselves. Twitter and Facebook have been taking down ISIS-affiliated accounts, and ISIS has noticed: the Caliphate vows cyber retaliation. Ransomware's grows in popularity among criminals. Cyber risks remain poorly understood, not only, a study suggests, in healthcare, but in boards and C-suites everywhere. Apple explains what creating "Government OS" for the FBI would actually involve. And we hear from the Johns Hopkins University's Joe Carrigan on public and private data collection.
