Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Welcome to episode 251 of the Transatlantic Cable. This week, the team look at some of the more ‘interesting’ stories in the cybersecurity world.

To kick off this week’s episode, the team look at a recent story suggesting that San Francisco Police are looking at ways to leverage the ‘always recording’ feature of driverless cars to their advantage – including for investigation leads. From there, the team discuss a recent blog looking at modern warfare, in particular how most military devices today are connected to the internet – is that a risk?

Moving on, the trio dissect a recent story looking at how malware could be uploaded to an iPhone whilst it’s powered off – however, there’s a caveat with the story that takes a little of the sting out of it. To wrap up, they look at recent research from Kaspersky around the shape of ransomware and how it’s perceived by business executives.
