The first step in defeating a foe is knowing your enemy, and in that vein we dive into our very own Cyber Threat Dictionary as our featured topic for Episode 18. Andrew and Kevin spotlight a sampling of terms from a to zero-days, defining some major cyber threats you've heard of (like phishing and ransomware), and some you may be less familiar with (rogue APs anyone?). We also offer tips on what to look for and how you can stop these cyber threats from stopping you.

Read through the whole Cyber Threat Dictionary to learn more. And see all things network security at our blog.

We also discuss cyber security headlines, including: 

Temporary hospitals are rife with cybersecurity vulnerabilities
