CU 2.0 Podcast Episode 145 Robert Siciliano on Ransomware and Who Do You Trust?

The CU2.0 Podcast

PSCU called it a growing credit union threat.  CUNA Mutual called it one of the fastest growing malware threats. Security company Arctic Wolf has said there was a 520% increase in ransomware and phishing attacks in the banking sector between March and June 2020.  NCUA has even issued a punchlist of steps to take to protect against ransomware attacks.Color me surprised.  I had thought ransomware - where hackers "lock" a site or a database and demand a ransom to unlock it - was a thing of the past.  Data redundancy in the cloud had eliminated the threat, I thought.I was wrong.Crooks are nimble and in today's iteration of ransomware, yes, the site still is locked - but before that happens the crook makes a point to copy key files.  Tell the crooks you won't play ball, or simply ignore their demands, and they up the ante by posting a sample of their data theft on publicly viewable sites. Imagine if the Social Security numbers of 10,000 of your members suddenly sprout up online. How ugly is that?Would you pay to avoid that?Crooks also know that increasing numbers of credit unions have what amounts to ransomware insurance coverage and they also know how much the insurers will pay.Don't underestimate them.  Brilliant hackers they are not necessarily - some in fact simply use ransomware kits they buy online - but here is what it takes to defeat them: recognizing that security is a 24/7, 365 days a year job, says Robert Siciliano, a longtime cybersecurity expert who works with many organizations to help them raise their defenses.It is not being paranoid, believing we are under continuing attacks, insists Siciliano in this podcast.  It is just being prudentThis is not a podcast overloaded with technical jargon.  What it is is a podcast intended to light a fire under all of us because we need that zeal if we intend to win, says Siciliano.Listen up.Like what you are hearing?

Ransomware To Choke Off Election? - Robert Siciliano #4952

Financial Survival Network

We could see Election Day chaos. If ransomware gets into any of the swing state’s computer system, the results could be disastrous. Every cyber security expert is focused on the election and are not sleeping soundly. If access to voter data get restricted via ransomeware, it will cast doubt into the election results or even worse. Many swing states in the last election were won by less than one percent. Microsoft and the DHS worked together to shut down a botnet recently. The network was spewing out malware and capturing peoples’s data on a mass scale. The election system across the country is composed of thousands of different systems of various age and quality. It’s documented and that information is available to hackers and other bad actors. This enables Russia and China to target vulnerabilities and possibly sabotage the results. Should this happen, we might need a do over. Back to paper ballots? It’s all about planning. Has the government planned adequately. You need to plan ahead. Just think of paper towel and toilet papers shortages that we saw from Covid, on steroids. Prepare, prepare, prepare…

Covid and Other Scams Running Rampant - Robert Siciliano #4772

Financial Survival Network

Noted cyber security expert Robert Siciliano observes that within several years cybercrime will be the third largest business on the planet. The current pandemic has only upped the stakes. It doesn't matter if you're a nanny or a police officer, you're still a potential target. And just like the current pandemic, It's not like the government is going to save you. There's just too many cases and not enough cops. That means that it's up to you to become aware, start changing your passwords and be aware that you're a potential target. Make those passwords long and complicated and maybe then you'll stand a chance.

Enterprise Security Weekly (Video)

Security goes against our core beliefs, therefore security awareness training often falls flat because employees don't care about security.
