On this week’s Phishy Business, we’re joined by Bruce McCully, Chief Security Officer at Galactic Advisors, cyber security consultancy, and author of multiple books. We discuss the importance of story-telling in cyber security, why MSPs (Managed Service Providers) have a target on their backs when it comes to ransomware, the vital importance of having properly set up back-ups in place and how Bruce is achieving his goal of helping a million people.
In ‘How to ‘level up’ ransomware protection and the curious case of the $54,000 ransom’, we discuss:
- How storytelling when warning on the dangers of cyber threats is important
- No matter how small or ‘uninteresting’ you think your business is, it is a target for cyber criminals
- Why MSPs are particularly targeted when it comes to ransomware
- Why anyone would target hospitals in cyber attacks
- The, perhaps unsexy, but critical importance of having proper data back-ups in place
