Episode 47: Ransomware Surges in October, Cathay Pacific Breach, and Triton Attributed

Digital Shadows

Harrison Van Riper and Rafael Amado join Michael Marriott to discuss the latest stories from the week. This week’s podcast has a strong Guy Richie flavor, with a focus on lock, stock and ru smoking barrels. We begin by discussing October’s hot ransomware activity, including the most popular variants, common targets, and mitigation advice. Second, we discuss sliding stock value amid reports of data breaches: we dig into the Cathay Pacific and Facebook breaches. And, finally we discuss the recent attribution of Triton malware to a Russian entity and why it’s TTPs you should care about.
