US Defense Department and UK’s MI6 aren’t buying Russian honey over cyber operations. Iranian influence operations. Marriott breach fallout. Court upholds Kaspersky ban. Ransom and sanctions.

Show Notes

In today’s podcast, we hear that senior US and UK officials have harsh words for Russian actions in cyberspace even as President Putin undertakes a charm offensive at the G20 meetings. (In fairness to the US and UK officials, it’s a pretty dour charm offensive.) Iran ups its influence operations game. Legal investigations and legislative responses to the Marriott breach begin. A US Court upholds the Government’s ban on Kaspersky products. And paying ransom to cyber extortionists could violate US sanctions. Daniel Prince from Lancaster University discussing growth, innovation and productivity within cyber security.
