Simon Taylor, David Brear and Jason Bates discuss recent hacks surrounding Deloitte, Equifax and CBS, and talk about Monzo, Starling and Alipay.

We talk hacks, hacks and more hacks as the team takes on the fallout from the Deloitte hack, the Equifax boss steps down after their hack, and CBS’ Showtime gets hacked, with code making users’ computers mine cryptocurrency in the background as they watch their favourite shows … Phew!

They also discuss more traditional Fintech Insider news stories, including Starling’s latest funding round, Monzo’s new integrations and Alipay’s latest partnerships, this time in Scandinavia. And finally … a family of raccoons shut down a Toronto bank. You heard it here first.

Regular hosts Simon Taylor, David Brear and Jason Bates are joined by special guests Andra Sonea and Valentina Kristensen. All that and more on today’s show.
