Staying Safe from Cyber Criminals

Cyber criminals no longer fit the movie cliché of the big screen. Instead these bad actors now form complex networks that resemble enterprises more than rogue agencies. They will cripple a business with ransomware costing millions. Wim and Jim are joined in this episode by cyber security experts James Aquilina and Austin Berglas to find out what’s behind this online criminal activity and how to avoid being the next target.
