Cybersecurity researcher, Mark Skilton joins us to dig deeper into the threat of the WannaCry malware. Mark explains what WannaCryptor is and what makes it so different from ransomware attacks we've seen in the past. We'll discuss the NSA's involvement in the EternalBlue exploit that made it possible, the smokescreen WannaCrypt is creating for the next big cyber attack, why so many companies are still susceptible, and what needs to change as we enter this new era of cyber threats.

Mark Skilton, of Warwick Business School, researches cyber security and is author of Building Digital Ecosystems with a new book, The Fourth Industrial Revolution, soon to be published. He is a Professor of Practice in the Information Systems & Management group. Check out Mark's books at cat5.tv/mark or his web site at markskilton.com
