50th Episode Spectacular - And Headlines, Too
Show Notes Chapter Markers
We've turned 50, as in 50 episodes old, yet cybersecurity hasn't aged a day since we started. Ok, maybe that's not true. We take a look back over our half a hundred's worth of podcasts, spotlighting some top clips, and seeing where things stand with them now. Highlights include a pre-pandemic prediction of work from home security issues, our first covid-19 Pod from Home, an update on diversity issues in cybersecurity careers, an update on ransomware relating to hospitals and beyond, and a check-in on cyber policy under President Biden. Plus we throw in a little Christmas in July clip to warm your hearts.

In headlines, we discuss a scam targeting ecommerce stores involving fraudulent returns, a trove of spyware data connected to an Israeli firm, and China called out for the recent Microsoft Exchange hack.
