The Air Gap Lie and the Spectrum of Extortion

Connected OT security challenges and the cascading effect that makes industrial hacks so attractive.

While the growth of ransomware, phishing schemes and other nefarious cyber activities are obviously not positive developments for the industrial sector, the resulting exposure and fallout from high profile events like Colonial Pipeline, JBS and, most recently, Dole Foods, have mandated a need for more data on attack surfaces, hacker tactics and the bad actors themselves.

In this episode, we'll be taking a closer look at all of these topics via findings from IBM Security’s most recent Threat Intelligence Index, as we sit down with John Dwyer, Head of Research for IBM Security’s X-Force.

We’re also excited to announce that Security Breach is being sponsored by Rockwell Automation. For more information on their cybersecurity solutions, you can go to
