This week on Lock and Code, we discuss the top security headlines generated right here on Labs and around the Internet. In addition, we talk to John Donovan, head of security at Malwarebytes, and Adam Kujawa, director of Malwarebtyes Labs, about securely working from home (WFH).
With shelter-in-place orders now in full effect to prevent the spread of coronavirus, countless businesses find themselves this year in mandatory work-from-home situations. On today’s episode, we go beyond just talking about threats. We have a dialogue.
First, what types of malware and attack methods are we seeing, and then, how has Malwarebytes responded. We want to give you an inside look, because even though we’re a cybersecurity company, staying cyber secure goes beyond malware detection. It reaches into educating your employees and implementing proper policies to protect your company.
Tune in for all this and more on the latest episode of Lock and Code, with host David Ruiz.
