We have all seen a wave of ransomware attacks in the news as of late. For those who are unfamiliar, ransomware is a type of malware that threatens to publish, destroy, or block access to the victim's personal data unless a ransom is paid. The ransom is usually paid to these attackers through cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, impairing the ability to trace the transaction back to the perpetrator. Targets of all sizes, such as the Colonial Pipeline, McDonalds, the University of California, all the way down to dental practices, have fallen prey to these attacks. No one is immune.

So could you be next? And what can we do to prevent these attacks from happening to us? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by Thomas J. Holt, director and professor in the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University.
