Hackable Me Episode 4: Hack to the Future

Episode 4 of Hackable Me turns from analysis of the threat actors to the practical, real-world impacts and challenges of their attacks, as well as the most common ways they exploit networks and what we can all do to mitigate the damage.

The podcast begins with Ryan Kalember, EVP of cybersecurity strategy at Proofpoint, explaining the top attack methods in 2020. We also hear from Shara Evans, technology futurist and keynote speaker. Ms. Evans details some rather troubling ways online learning and Zoom classroom environments have been taken over by threat actors. She also makes the important point that while people love their digital personal assistants, they are no less hackable than anything else. Our experts go on to illustrate other real-life threats that have been deployed, and some we should expect.

Ryan concludes the podcast outlining the combination of email security, security awareness training and technology that are required to defend against 2020’s threat landscape.
