Cybersecurity headlines get the spotlight in Episode 21 of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast. What’s in the news this week? Andrew and Kevin cover PonyFinal ransomware and explain how it waits patiently to strike – come for the story, stay for the pony puns. We talk about about an Indonesian electoral records breach and why it should worry others as well. Then, it’s a story about a business email compromise (BEC) guru whose guruing days may be over after thefts from Electrolux and more. And finally, as a bonus headline we countdown 9 of the biggest breaches of 2020 so far.
