InSecurity Podcast: The BlackBerry 2020 Threat Report

The BlackBerry 2020 Threat Report contains a broad range of topics vital to the interests of anyone with a computer. The report is driven by those veterans of the security industry, BlackBerry researchers.

The goal of the report is to make security information, predictions, and lessons learned accessible to everyone, regardless of role or title.

The 2020 Threat Report examines the last 12 months of major security breaches and considers recent advancements that may prevent past mistakes from being repeated. We have gathered some of the researchers who worked on the threat report for a discussion about what went into the report and what you can get out of it.

This special episode of InSecurity takes a look at the cybersecurity threats of 2019 through a conversation with Threat Researchers Ebudo Osime, Anuj Soni and Tom Bonner. We examine BlackBerry’s research on all things cybersecurity for the prior year in order to get a handle on the coming year’s threats. In this podcast, we put our experts to work to analyze the prior year in order to see what might be coming our way.
