This is the Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. On this week’s episode, I am joined by Deepak Ravi from our Dublin technical sales engineering team to discuss a recent outage at Garmin. According to its press release, Garmin confirmed that it was a victim of a ransomware attack, which took down several of its services including its website functions, customer support, customer-facing applications, and company communications. In this episode, we walk through what we observed in the ThousandEyes platform during the time of the attack, and what the impacts were on users attempting to access Garmin services. We’re also joined by ThousandEyes’ CISO, Alexander Anoufriev, to talk about what ransomware attacks are, how they manifest and how organizations can protect themselves against future attacks.
