TE18 – Personal Security

Today we do something different and Bob Van Valzeh and I have a frank discussion on personal security in a digital world. Below are some of the topics we discuss:

  • Some background on Scott’s hacking past and his conversion to a white hat, friendly hacker
  • Personal security, acting smartly
  • Don’t carelessly create opportunities for hackers
  • Usage of password managers
  • Being aware of threats around you social engineering, skimmers, etc…
  • Don’t create opportunities for your assets to be stolen, using checks, online banking
  • Being careful with email and phone usage
  • Updating your Internet of Things (IoT) devices, thermostats, routers, personal devices, …

We then wrap it up with a quick rant on the government hoarding cybersecurity exploits.
