Quotes from Episode


"The purpose of our program is to reduce the global impact of cybercrime and protect communities for a safer world. It's simple, that's what we're trying to do. We're trying to make the world safer and we're trying to stop the harm from the cybercriminals impacting into our communities, whether that's someone just sitting at home playing PlayStation or something like that, or whether that's a large international business that has a ransomware attack and then is basically shut down for a period of time. So that's what our role is." (10:31--10:59)


"What can we do with that data and information to help us identify the criminals or the TTPs behind that so we can actually then identify and prevent those systemic risks in systems and networks that criminals are able to take advantage of? How do we share that more widely?" (44:19; video 4)
