Is ransomware getting too fast?
Ryan Kovar, distinguished security strategist at Splunk and leader of SURGe, discusses the speed of ransomware, as well as the first-of-its-kind research the SURGe team is releasing on how quickly the top ransomware families can encrypt 100,000 files. Joe and Dave share some listener follow up from listener Josh. Joe's story follows the baby food shortage and warns about the dangers of sellers scamming people through online purchases of formula. Dave's story is on how IT members can identify the three most dangerous types of internal users and what businesses need to look out for. Our catch of the day comes from listener Josh, who shares about a friend of his who possibly got hacked and the check the scammers claimed was real.
