For the 63rd instalment of the Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and Jeff jump around a bit on topics, but mainly stick to our reoccurring theme of scams and privacy.
The first story on tap looks at the latest cryptocurrency scam run by hackers via Target’s verified account. Unlike past scammers pretending to be Elon Musk or Bill Gates, the hackers ran an ad to lure people into their Bitcoin scam. From there we jump to a data breach impacting those who purchased recreational marijuana in Canada.
The third story looks at UK-based companies embedding bio chips into their employees. We close out the podcast looking at the latest research by Kaspersky Lab on phishing and spam.

This week, Dave and I were in the same city. So, instead of taking a long romantic stroll around the city of Roma, we decided to sit down and record a different version of the Transatlantic Cable podcast (presented by Kaspersky Lab) and talk about a single topic – parenting and privacy in the age of the digital native.
Both Dave and I are parents to young children and often discuss views on how we look at bringing up our kids within this day and age that really does not have a playbook.
Also - apologies for the poor audio in places - in the middle of recording, a thunderstorm broke out!
