Transatlantic Cable Podcast

This week was semi-slow when it came to looking for articles to bring to the table for the 79th edition of the Kaspersky Lab Transatlantic Cable podcast. But in our space, a slow week can generally be seen as a good thing.

To kick things off, we look at some proposed legislation in the UK in regards to Facebook. I think it is safe to say that we all agree that the network has a way to go when it comes to handling fake news and other problematic points. However, the question becomes is it the job of one government or is this a bigger fish to fry?

From there, we stay in the UK for a crossover on the small screen for shows Holby City and Casualty which will look at a cyber attack that seems oddly similar to WannaCry. The next story stays in the EU and looks at the latest sport in France – Lightsaber Duels. Star Wars fans rejoice! To close things out, we head to the hardwood where Nike has announced their latest smart shoe complete with charging pad, IoT connectivity and self-lacing shoes.
