Episode Description

The Chairman of the InfraGard Technology Committee, Alain Espinosa, appears on Episode no 99 of Task Force 7 Radio to talk about the alarming proliferation of ransomware, how ransomware actually spreads, how criminals choose their ransomware targets, what to do if you become a victim of ransomware, and how to prevent ransomeware from being introduced into your network. Espinosa stays on the cyber crime topic by also talking about business email compromises (BECs), and what types of BEC scams exist, how criminals use BEC scams to commit crimes, what do do if you are a victim of a BEC scam, and how you can prevent business email compromises from wreaking havoc on your business. And in the last segment of the show Espinosa talks about what executives can do to protect their data when traveling internationally and gives recommendations on what protocols are best when they return home.
