The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of how ransomware attackers lie about their inclinations, motivations and tactics.

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

  • Tom Kellermann of VMWare Carbon Black discuss the rise of integrity attacks;
  • Pandemic expert Regina Phelps dispel some common myths circulating about the safety of vaccines.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the July 23 and July 30 editions, which respectively discuss the implications of the Pegasus spyware investigation and keeping track of ransomware gangs.
