James Morrison with the FBI Houston Division joins host Craig Price to discuss cyber crime. As a computer scientist, James has had to deal with many complex problems and solve many issues but nothing as mind boggling as Comicpalooza and Craig. The two bravely sit down in the Houston heat and humidity to discuss ransomware, the importance of backing files up, why criminals are more interested in your medical records than files on your hard drive and what you can do to prevent problems in the future. It is all part of Comicpalooza’s Science-Fiction/Science-Faction educational track which happened in Houston June 17th through June 19th. It was an amazing event and Craig even gives a quick rundown of the weekend where he had a surprise hosting assignment with actress Tara Reid! It’s a great way to celebrate 200 episodes.
Reality Check was a proud member of the 2016 Comicpalooza Podcast Partnership Program which arranged this interview and a few more to come.
