Tom Cross on KUCI’s “Privacy Piracy” Radio Show

Our director of security research, Tom Cross, recently appeared as a guest on the “Privacy Piracy” radio show on KUCI 88.9 FM in Irvine, CA and streaming at www.kuci.org. During the show, Tom speaks with host Mari Frank, Esq. about cyber security and the recent retail breaches that have been making headlines.

Listen to the interview here to learn about the various ways attackers are infiltrating retail networks – from targeting insecure wireless networks, to installing malware on cash registers, to stealing valid access credentials, just to name a few. Tom also outlines various steps organizations can take to improve their security measures, such as sharing threat information with third parties, educating top-level executives on the threats facing their infrastructure and maintaining a team dedicated solely to incident response.

Tom has over a decade of experience as a computer security researcher and thought leader and is credited with discovering a number of critical security vulnerabilities in enterprise-class software. He holds a degree in computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and is a Distinguished Fellow at the Ponemon Institute.
