For the week of May 8, 2022:
As if media industry turmoil isn’t enough of a challenge for reporters.
They also face threats from ransomware hackers to political extremists to agents of authoritarian regimes like China and Russia.
This week’s guest on theBreaker.news Podcast is Dave Masson, the Ottawa-based director of enterprise security at Darktrace, a Cambridge, England headquartered cybersecurity firm.
Masson, a former senior manager in the U.K. Ministry of Defence and Public Safety Canada, offers his take on cybersecurity trends and tips for both journalists and the public on how to stay safe online and off.
“Threat actors are constantly innovating. They are innovating faster than the cybersecurity market innovates to be perfectly honest with you,” Masson tells host Bob Mackin.
“Keep one step ahead of attackers — it’s more likely that we’re always one step behind, but the important thing is to keep just the one step behind and be prepared to act.”
Also, commentary and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
