This week’s podcast was inspired by chief information security officer Wendy Nather’s article, The Security Povery Line and Junk Food. It’s 2018 and we’re still struggling to get a proper security budget. Is it a mindset? Is that why when we hire pen testers to identify vulnerabilities, they’re usually able to gain admin access? On the bright side, a company with a bigger budget, Google recently declared victory with a USB key that prevented phishing for an entire year.
