Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, July 11, 2021

Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, health and medical records – to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: The anatomy of a ransomware attack; The Evolution of Cybercrime as a Service; The Older You Are, the More Likely You Are to Fall Victim to Cybercrime; and Capitol rioters who deleted social media posts of their involvement may have further incriminated themselves.
