He shares the different cybersecurity threats the sector has recently faced and how data can be valued and sold by cyber attackers. He explains how ransomware works, what the hackers can do to company and client data, and what a company should do if targeted. He describes how companies should prepare for a potential threat and what ordinary citizens should do to secure their data. Fred also explains the key differences between US regulations and European regulations.
