Earlier this year, Paul Ferrillo and Chris Veltsos recorded a nine-part podcast series complementing their recent book release, “Take Back Control of Your Cybersecurity Now.” Now, Paul and Chris are back to talk with IBM’s Mitch Mayne about current topics in security, starting with ransomware.

In recent weeks cybercriminals have carried out several blended attacks that combined ransomware — disruptive and damaging enough on its own — with an additional attack vector, such as data-exfiltrating malware.
