Ransomware gets the spotlight on Episode 30 of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast. We start with our latest edition of Ransomware Reckoning, spotlighting a case that affected COVID-19 clinical trials.
Then it's onto headlines. We discuss a Europol survey suggesting many victims don't report ransomware attacks to authorities, and why that's a bad thing. Plus how U.S.-based organizations may face major penalties for paying ransoms to certain organizations.
In other news, hear about a new version of Google Chrome with a feature to help better ID phishing. And in another case of cyber attacks affecting day to day life, we discuss a breach of multiple Switzerland universities that led to stolen employee paychecks.
