As promised on our 2017 Topics List, January is for cybersecurity resolutions. This podcast features Preston and me discussing a short list of cybersecurity awareness topics for personal and for business use. Staying secure in everything you do is very important. We can’t stress too much the importance of using very strong passwords, doing some regular housekeeping, being smart about opening email attachments, and protecting yourself from cyberstalkers who want to compromise your accounts and your identities.
We decided to try something different today and record our podcast at a little cafe that’s inside our favorite bookstore; The RoseRock Cafe* on South Mingo Road. The recommended choice is the Reuben sandwich on marbled rye bread, which is excellent, by the way.
The only problem with recording in public is that you’re subjected to random sounds, like the phone in the background that seems to ring and ring and ring. I know that the bookstore is staffed well enough that someone could have picked up. But that’s why we chose the cafe setting because we wanted those ambient sounds. Plus, there’s something ironic about discussing a security topic in a public place.
Length: 10:29 minutes. Format: MP3. Rating: G for all audiences.
This short podcast has a lot of good information in it about how to protect yourself. Over the coming weeks and months, Preston and I will return to public places to discuss cybersecurity and maybe even conduct a few impromptu interviews along the way.
*RoseRock Cafe & Bakery is not a SecurityNOW show sponsor, but they were kind enough to allow us to record our show there.
