Episode Info:

For the 117th episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Dave and I take change things up a bit. Instead of a 20-minute episode, we go a bit longer with a talk with one of the researchers from the Kaspersky Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT).

Our first story heads to the United States and the energy sector. The issue in the story is tied to an energy company that suffered a cyberattack to their firewalls.

 

From Arizona, we head across the Atlantic to Eurasia. In this story we look at the impact of Bitcoin mining in the Republic of Georgia. While many often hang on the environmental impact, however what if the energy was renewable? After our talk on renewable energy, we head back to the States where we look at the new challenge to facial recognition technology.

After the first three stories, we deviate from our normal programing. I sit down with Santiago from our research team to discuss his latest research on the world of gaming cheating. There are a number of things in there that surprised me, most notably the amount of money and the similarities with the black market for malware.

To close things out, we stay on the topic of gaming and look at the latest on a professional player banned for cheating.
