U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's Record on Cybersecurity

An analysis of the record of the U.K.'s new prime minister, Theresa May, on cybersecurity and online privacy and a report on efforts to create an antidote to ransomware highlight this edition of the ISMG Security Report.

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • Scotland-based DataBreachToday Executive Editor Mathew J. Schwartz explain how May's tenure as home secretary - where she pushed legislation to increase online surveillance - could shape her decision-making as the U.K. head of government;
  • ISMG Managing Editor for Security and Technology Jeremy Kirk describe researchers' efforts to develop software that could mitigate the damages caused by ransomware;
  • Highlights from congressional testimony on the challenges of implementing - and enforcing - international norms of responsible state behavior in cyberspace; and
  • A description of why the Israel Defense Forces has banned Pokémon Go from its bases.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Tuesdays and Fridays. Be sure to check out our July 8 and July 12 reports, which respectively analyze the fierce battle between endpoint protection product makers and President Obama's concerns about the state of federal government IT security. The next ISMG Security Report will be posted Tuesday, July 19.
