The Bold Type Cyber Attack

CyberSkills have a Science Week treat for fans of the popular Netflix series The Bold Type. From S3E5 the ‘Technical Difficulties’ storyline saw Scarlet magazine experience an cyber attack, with the hackers asking for a ransom to get their data back. 

A leak could jeopardise the confidentiality that 26-year old Jane promised an important source. Richard thinks they should pay the ransom. Scarlet magazine is in meltdown-mode.

Join Cyber Skills EPE Manager Aoife Long in discussion with International Cybersecurity expert… as they do a deep dive on the storyline. How realistic was it? Why did the hackers want bitcoin? Do companies normally pay the ransom?
