'Hackers Are Heartless Bastards'

JohnE Upgrade is back and talking about what pizza delivery teaches us about cybersecurity, why you might have to pay ransomware attackers, and avoiding the 'angry executive' scheme.

If there’s one thing that has become very apparent in dealing with cybersecurity issues throughout the industrial sector, it’s that responding to these challenges means taking a look at things from a different perspective.

I recently sat down with Johnny Young, a 35-year veteran of industrial IT and cybersecurity. He’s embraced his role as JohnE Upgrade and launched CyberD.TV - a streaming subscription service devoted to providing comprehensive cybersecurity training.

What follows is the second of two episodes featuring JohnE. Here he talks about some of steps companies can take in guarding against any number of cyberattacks.

JohnE  has also set up a 50 percent discount for Security Breach viewers. For six months, instead of the usual $19.99 monthly subscription, the cost will be $9.99 when entering the promotional code JEFF. It can be cancelled at any time.
