Ransomware Warning: Are Businesses Stepping Up?
BlackMatter cybersecurity alert issued by the U.S. government

The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of whether businesses are stepping up their ransomware defenses in response to several warnings released by the U.S. and U.K. governments highlighting the threat posed to infrastructure.

In this report, you'll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz evaluate how businesses are responding to warnings from the U.S. and U.K. governments that say ransomware poses a threat to infrastructure;
  • ISMG's Jeremy Kirk describe how a data breach affecting MakerBot's Thingiverse 3D printing repository website may be far bigger than what the company has acknowledged;
  • Forensic investigator Johan Waldeck of Comair Limited (CFE) discuss the card-not-present fraud trends targeting the aviation industry.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the Oct. 8 and Oct. 15 editions, which respectively discuss finding new ways to disrupt ransomware operations and giving young hackers a second chance.
