Show notes

Ranson and Tony are back as Speakeasy Security returns for another season. This week, our hosts dig into a recent hack of Blackbaud that has affected universities, non-profits and charity organizations around the world...and the attackers nearly got away with it! What happened with this attack that Tony labels “Hostage-ware” and how did the attackers take only a subset of data? With data breaches showing no signs of slowing down, this episode of Speakeasy Security goes right to the core of why cybercriminals are continuing to target organizations and their end-users.
