Inside the Media Mind of Benjamin Freed: The Breadth and Depth of Ransomware Attacks

On this week’s episode of Inside the Media Minds, we meet with Benjamin Freed, Technology Editor at StateScoop. From the beginning of his career as a freelance journalist covering arts, to becoming fully immersed in the cybersecurity space, Ben has developed a passion for uncovering the latest and greatest threats across the country. 

Recently, Ben and his team created an interactive ransomware map in order to illustrate the frequency of ransomware attacks and why people need to be concerned, especially the state and local governments that are frequently victimized. 

Listen to this week’s episode to learn more on:

  • Election security and the impact of social media
  • The most anticipated cybersecurity stories of 2020
  • The most critical question he asks when covering a story – “How big of a splash is it making?”
