Hacktivism vs. Italy & the UN. Ransomware update. Report on healthcare's cyber threat model. Apple takes the 5th?
In today's podcast, we hear about new hacktivist actions. Industry's Operation Blockbuster supports US Government attribution of the 2014 Sony hack to North Korea. Independent Security Evaluators releases a study suggesting that the healthcare sector has the wrong cyber threat model—patient health, not patient records, are most at risk. We hear from their CEO, Stephen Bono, on what the company found. We also get an update on the Apple-FBI dispute (will Apple take the Fifth?) and we hear from Malek Ben Salem, of Accenture Technology Labs, on the state of biometric authentication.
