Cyber Reconnaissance
16:15

Unit 42 leaders Ryan Olson and Rick Howard present another another season of their "Don't Panic" podcast, where they break down the components of large scale cyber security attacks and tell you why you don't need to panic.

 

In this episode the topic is Cyber Reconnaissance - the tactic of gathering information about a target to help further a cyber attack. This is the first phase of the well-known cyber attack lifecycle, and one that people often ignore. We’re discussing how it works, what you can do about it, and what you should not do about it.
