Last week, we told you we were launching a fortnightly podcast, called Lock and Code. This week, we made good on our promise, with lots of headlines generated right here on Labs, as well as other security news around the web. In addition, we talk with Britta Glade, Director of Content and Curation for RSA Conference, about the theme for last week’s conference: “The Human Element,” plus which types of submissions do well and what types will almost always be rejected.
Tune in for all this and more on the premiere episode of the first season of Lock and Code, with host David Ruiz.
We cover our own research on:
- Security challenges in the world of biotech healthcare
- A fake Content Delivery Network serving up a credit card skimmer
- Why Americans seem to accept stalkerware
- Mac adware being more dangerous than Mac malware
- Why managed service providers (MSPs) are critical for business continuity
Plus, other cybersecurity news:
