Please find below the questions for Aviad Hasnis, CTO of Cynet for a podcast interview.
- What are your thoughts on REvil’s attack on Kaseya? Should we expect a new stage in the evolution of the ransomware business, namely the attack on the supply chain? Will this type of attack become more common in the near future?
- So, how can businesses and system owners build trust while still running their own IT systems? Do today’s small and medium-sized businesses suffer the same threats as the larger corporations that we are seeing being hacked in the news?
- This is a worsening scenario, with supply chain attacks being a key development area for cyber criminals, so the question now is what can SMBs do to defend themselves and their consumers?
- What impact does the Kaseya Ransomware attack have on MSSPs? What can businesses do to reduce the danger of a security breach?
- It’s difficult to talk about supply chain security without mentioning SolarWinds. As part of the supply chain attack, hundreds of industrial organizations received a piece of malware called Sunburst. How do most industrial facilities keep themselves secure from attack, and why isn’t it working?
- Another hidden danger to the supply chain is open-source software libraries. What can companies do to reduce from open-source vulnerabilities?
- Could you give us a rundown of your predictions for the rest of 2021 in terms of cyber security?
