This installment of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast has a fairly strong law-and-order feel.
To kick things off, Dave and I look to the United Kingdom. Similar to Singapore’s COVID-19 app, the NHS has some work to do on its app before rollout. Another popular (prepandemic) story from 2020 — US cities hit with ransomware — continues, with the city of Knoxville, Tennessee.
For the third story, we take a look at facial recognition. This week, the controversy swings from the facial recognition itself to tech heavyweights no longer selling the technology to certain entities.
Following that discussion, we head to the world of cryptocurrency. This bizarre tale has everything from carwashes to money laundering to the courtroom. For our final story, we discuss an article about some eBay executives cyberstalking an online pub that was critical of the company.
