For the 185th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Jeff and I sat down with our good friend, Marco Preuss from the Kaspersky Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) to talk about the work he’s done looking at second hand devices and the data that was found on them.
During the chat, Marco, Dave and Jeff talk about the data that was left, unbeknown to the previous owners as well as what people can do to be sure their data is deleted properly.
Nice informative podcast
Very informative podcast with good variety on subjects related to cyber security and privacy.
(Speaking volumes of attendees could be much better normalized to the same level though. Especially when listening in a car commuting, it’s not always easy to hear what someone says who’s dialed in)
