EPISODE 17: Pinky Brand, SVP at iQ, speaks with Carel Bitter, Head of Data at Spamhaus, about the latest in cyber threats that they track, regulatory interest observations, and related reports on domain abuse. We learn about criminal domain name usage trends that propagate phishing, malware, and botnets. We also discuss the issues of trust, authenticating users, how botnet command and control points work, and potential threats due to the war in Ukraine.
