Security In Five Podcast Weekly Roundup – 1/26/18

The first month of the year is wrapping up and the podcast is cruising right along. The amazing thing is that as I write this today I the podcast has exceeded my monthly download record. Since I started this in June, each month more and more people are listening. That’s great and hopefully people are finding nuggets of knowledge to make parts of their lives more secure. It all comes down to knowledge and in security you only know what you know. It’s impossible to create protections for aspects you have no clue about.

From home router configurations to information security program development there are areas to improve everywhere. Security In Five is meant to simplify, generalize and help in a way that can be understood by everyone. The attacks on the data will only increase, identity theft is on the rise, ransomware is going to get worse and everyone needs to be aware. Assumptions that you will never be found, your devices aren’t of any interest, hackers don’t look for regular people will get you in trouble. Hackers look for the easy access. They use scanners, bots and automation that runs 24 hours a day, every day, all the time. Constantly scanning, looking for that one moment when a door is left open, an unpatched system comes online, access is granted incorrectly they find it all and exploit it. Never assume.
