A SecurityNOW Less Than Private Privacy Discussion (Podcast)

Privacy PleasePreston and I decided to discuss the latest in privacy at Shiloh’s Restaurant in Broken Arrow a few days ago. As you’ll hear on the podcast, we perhaps needed more privacy. I apologize for the background noise but you can think of it as a lesson in security in that our conversation at times was obfuscated by surrounding conversations and music that didn’t seem to start playing until we hit the Record button. Such is life. We deal with our surroundings all the time, which makes me believe that our choice of venue for this podcast was the perfect setting to have a conversation on privacy. It works on many levels.

During our talk, Preston and I ponder the outcome of the Congressional decision to remove current privacy legislation and put it firmly in the hands of someone grossly unqualified to make such a decision. In any case, I think we need to join together in embracing privacy much like the EU has with GDPR, which we’ve discussed in another podcast.

Stay tuned for more commentary as the situation develops.

Seriously, please write your Congressman and your Senators about this. It’s too important to leave in unqualified hands.

The Cloud and the Myth of Data Protection: Podcast with CTERA’s Jim Crook

CTERAIf you presume that your cloud solution protects you from data loss, you’d better think again and listen to this podcast about cloud data protection. CTERA‘s Senior Product Marketing Manager, Jim Crook, discusses cloud data protection survey results, mentions a free ebook, and gives an overview of cloud data protection, ransomware, and keeping your business operational through it all.

Preston, Jim, and I want to enlighten everyone to the fact that just because you have your data in the cloud, it’s not necessarily protected from loss. Accidental deletion, disasters, malware, and service failure can lead to data loss and outages for your business. Get the scoop on making some good decisions about protecting your data in this podcast.
