Here on the Scammercast, we talk a lot about how to prevent scams and fraud from occurring in the first place. But, even very smart, savvy people can be victimized by the scammers. In the area of cybersecurity, this is particularly true.

A Visit with Marti Deliema from the Stanford Center on Longevity at Stanford University

We’ve spoken many times here on the Scammercast about the crucial role that emotions play in scams and frauds. Emotions overpower and send offline your thinking brain, where your trusty “scam detector” lives. We have one entire episode devoted to the importance of emotions (plug the 5 FLAGS episode), and today we’re going to go deeper with Marti DeLiema of the Stanford Longevity Research Institute as she tells us about the research she’s been conducting that sheds light on how scammers get reasonable and intelligent people to fall prey to scammers.

Federal Trade Commission In-Studio: a Visit with Director Steven Baker

Cybersecurity continues to be a hot topic in the United States and, in fact, around the world. We have witnessed numerous data breaches, malware attacks, and now the latest trend, ransomware — holding a computer system hostage until a payment is made. It seems that data breaches are almost inevitable. If you become a target, it becomes simply a question of when. So, how do we keep ourselves and our older adult parents and loved ones from becoming a target? We are joined today by Matthew Herren, an expert in cybersecurity to help us look into this topic further. We guarantee that some of this thoughts and perspective will make you stop and think the next time you turn on your computer.
