Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against computer threats, today announced that it will record regular podcasts in which its experts will discuss and debate the latest malware threats, industry developments and long term security issues. The podcasts will provide valuable insight into the changing threat environment as well as the steps that businesses must take to protect themselves.

In the first podcast, released on Sophos's website today, Carole Theriault interviews Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant, about the last six months of cyber crime, and asks what lies ahead. Issues covered include the changing nature of malware, the growing prevalence of Trojan horses and the emergence of new threats such as ransomware.

"The idea behind the podcasts is to make readily available advice and information on the latest threats," explained Carole Theriault, host of the first Sophos podcast. "Busy IT professionals, as well as computer users who want to learn more about security issues, can subscribe to automatically download each new release, meaning they have instant access to the latest news without the hassle of having to find it themselves. With the podcasts, they can just listen on the go."

Future podcast topics will include email security issues, rootkits and mobile security.

The podcasts are available for download at
