The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of how the U.S. military has been "imposing costs" on ransomware groups.

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

  • ISMG's Mathew Schwartz discuss how the U.S. military has been tasked with not just disrupting ransomware groups but also tracking them, in conjunction with law enforcement agencies;
  • ISMG's Jeremy Kirk describe how a hack accusation made by the governor of Missouri lost its steam;
  • Steve King, director of cybersecurity advisory services for ISMG's CyberTheory, say why implementing a Zero Trust strategy is the only way to secure the enterprise.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the Nov. 26 and Dec. 2 editions, which respectively discuss essential preparations for the holiday season attack surge and how to negotiate a ransomware payment.
