Gerry and Steve discuss the penalty exacted on a Florida man who was responsible for opening a malicious email leading to a ransomware attack. They discuss UChicago’s and Google being sued for (maybe) improperly handling patient data. They wrap up discussing legislation going through Senate to help reduce financial penalties associated with HIPAA incidents depending on the organization’s cyber security posture.

As always they end with One Cool Thing.
