Great for all audiences

3/26/2019 Update:

Still love this podcast one year after my first listen. Whether you’re a cyber pro or someone interested in keeping informed about the latest trends in how criminals abuse our privacy, these guys make this info easy to digest.

April 2018: Last week I was on a road trip. As I returned home I wanted to learn more about the issues in health care information security. Thanks to a friend, I heard about the Infosec ICU podcast presented by Steven Cardinal and Gerald Auger - MS, CISSP. I binge listened to as many episodes as I could fit in while I was driving. I just wanted to thank Steven and Gerald for the great content and entertainment.

Even if this is not your field, I highly recommend listening. They pack incredible amounts of information into a 30-45 minute weekly digest of relevant topics for all in today's world in which the internet of things constantly redefines how we interpret and preserve our privacy.
