Cyber24 Podcast breaks down two important, but largely-overlooked cybersecurity stories.
When a top-ranked U.S. security official says our digital lives are in danger like never before, you should probably believe her. That’s a direct quote from the Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.
In this episode, we take a look at some of the top cybersecurity stories you likely missed, unless you were looking for them. Cybersecurity still doesn’t grab the headlines unless it involves a breach at a top social media platform, but there are more and more stories that you need to know about as you navigate life in a digital-dependent world.
We break down a recent speech by the head of DHS to see how seriously the federal government is taking cybersecurity. We also look into how government officials are preparing for the upcoming census – and why they have a lot of work ahead of them before 2020.
