In this week’s episode, Andy and guest Eric Siron discuss the cybersecurity landscape based on data from the Monthly Threat Report for May 2024. They cover a range of news items, including Microsoft’s recent announcement to expand the Secure Future Initiative, the new PSTI (Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure) Act in the UK and a significant brand impersonation campaign targeting the German financial entity Commerzbank. Additionally, they provide updates on the Change Healthcare ransomware attack. 

Key takeaways: 

  • Microsoft’s acknowledgement of security issues is crucial for building customer trust. 
  • The PSTI Act in the UK sets standards for consumer device security and compliance. 
  • Payment of ransoms in ransomware attacks needs to be carefully evaluated. 
  • Data breaches in healthcare can have widespread and long-term consequences for patients and organizations.
