The Current State of Financial Threat Activity

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with John Miller, manager of threat intelligence at FireEye, to discuss his thoughts on the current state of financial threats.

Listen to the full podcast here.

At FireEye, John leads a team that focuses on financially motivated threat activity. Some of the most common financial threat activity that John is seeing today involves ransomware, point of sale malware, credential theft malware, and other types of extortion.

During our chat, John also touched on his roots and how he got started in this area of security, attack methods observed from the front lines of our cyber investigations that seem to be growing in popularity, and preventive steps organizations can put in place to reduce the risk of being compromised.
