For the 147th installment of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I have a fairly strong law and order feel.
To kick things off, we look to the UK. Similar to our discussion on Singapore’s Covid-19 app, the NHS looks to have some working out to do on their app before rolling it out. We then hang onto another popular story of 2020 prior to the pandemic – US cities hit with ransomware. In this case, it was the city of Knoxville, Tennessee.
For the third story of the week, we take a look at facial recognition. This week, the controversy swings from the technology itself to what entities tech heavyweights will no longer sell to. Following that discussion, we head to the world of cryptocurrency. In this bizarre tale, we have everything from carwashes to money laundering to the courtroom. This is one you should really take a read into. Our final story stays in the realm of real crime drama. The article that we discuss talks about some cyber-stalking done on behalf of eBay executives to an online pub that was critical of the company.
