The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of how organizations can reduce their cybersecurity risk, especially over holidays and weekends, when attackers are most likely to strike.

In this report, you'll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • Advice for critical infrastructure operators and business enterprises for the 2021 holiday season delivered by CSO Sam Curry of Cybereason;
  • Highlights from the IRISSCON 2021 cybercrime conference in Ireland, at which ISMG's Mathew Schwartz says the specter of ransomware loomed large;
  • Pandemic expert Regina Phelps discuss how employers can implement a return to the workplace, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, in a way that safeguards employees' wellbeing.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 editions, which respectively discuss the progress made by law enforcement agencies in the effort to crack down on ransomware and how cybercriminals are using cryptomixing services to conceal the proceeds of ransomware activities.
