Welcome to Cyber Security America, the podcast where we delve deep into the world of cybersecurity and provide insights on past trends, current challenges, and areas for improvement. Our goal is to help you stay informed and prepared for the next cyber threat. In this episode, we have a very special guest, Bruce Schneier, an internationally renowned security technologist, known as a "security guru" by The Economist. With over a dozen books and hundreds of articles and academic papers under his belt, Bruce is a true legend in the information security field. He's also the author of the latest book, "A Hacker's Mind," where he takes hacking out of the world of computing and uses it to analyze the systems that underpin our society. During our conversation, Bruce provides us with valuable insights on the current state of cybersecurity. He discusses the impact of coordinated takedowns by federal forces on ransomware actors, and how less payment transactions on the blockchain related to ransomware actors is a promising sign. He also highlights an emerging threat, Black Lotus, and shares his thoughts on how artificial intelligence thinking like a hacker could be catastrophic. This episode is packed with expert tips and lessons learned. So tune in now to Cyber Security America and join the conversation.
