In February 2016, Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA was hit by a ransomware attack that ultimately cost them $17,000 when cyber attackers were effectively able to shut down the hospital unless they paid up. In this episode, we discuss the increased targeting of both small and large organizations and enterprises, how ransomware works, and what you can do to prevent your organization from being the next target.

Also in this episode: Making your mobile device more secure, the curious case of a police department being held up by cyber criminals, and why you may not have to prove you’re not a robot when you log in to websites anymore.
