The year 2020 will be remembered for many things - few positive. And another ignominious distinction has to do with cybercrime. SonicWall's 2021 Cyber Threat Report, just released on March 16, dives deep into the threat landscape to show us just how bad the year was when it comes to cyber attacks - or good if you happen to be launching them. SonicWall's Brook Chelmo joins us to go over some highlights, discussing ransomware, IoT device vulnerabilities, reasons why remote work has led to security issues, and much, much more.
