Beers with Talos Ep. #119: If it walks like a BlackCat, meows like a BlackCat...
August 12, 2022
Mitch Neff (host), Matt Olney (speaker), Nick Biasini (speaker), and Liz Waddell (speaker)
We’re all still pretty exhausted from our work in Ukraine. But that hasn’t slowed down any of the threat actors, unfortunately. So we enlisted special guest Nick Biasini to dive into the BlackCat ransomware group to discuss how it potentially is or isn’t connected to BlackMatter/DarkSide. These ransomware-as-a-service groups surprisingly run like regular companies, and even have the same problems with employee retention! Plus, Matt and Liz provide updates on their work in helping to defend Ukrainian networks and organizations.
