We’ve said it before, but it pays to know the cyber threats you face on a day-to-day basis. What you’re likely to encounter. So you can take action to protect yourself, your network, and of course, your bottom line.

On Episode 15, we talk with SonicWall’s Brook Chelmo about the security company’s 2020 Cyber Threat Report (https://www.sonicwall.com/2020-cyber-threat-report/). The report compiles information about the latest criminal advances and security advances. We go over the highlights (or lowlights depending on your perspective) including a trend to more targeted attacks in both ransomware and phishing. And the move toward perimeter-less security. We summarized the report on a recent blog post (https://www.firewalls.com/blog/a-wireless-world-ping-podcast/). As a bonus, we also get an update from Brook about his conversations with the Hildacrypt ransomware cell, which we first spotlighted on Episode 8.
