The CyberWire Daily Podcast
The CyberWire Daily Podcast is a look at what's happening in cyberspace. It provides a clear and concise summary of the news and offers commentary from industry experts.
In this podcast we hear about "Rasputin," a cybercriminal selling US Election Assistance Commission credentials. US investigation of Russian influence operations continues, with promises of eventual retaliation (nose-thumbing from Moscow received in response). UK and EU officials worry about Russian meddling with 2017 elections. The Yahoo! breach sinks in—some call it the "Exxon Valdez" of cyberspace. New ransomware strains and growing ransomware sector, but help in the form of an international public-private partnership. Markus Rauschecker from the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security discusses the National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP). We talk privacy and encryption policy with Jacob Ginsberg from Echoworx. And we're closer to seeing robot drivers on the streets.
