Security for everybody

I’ve been listening to the Sophos podcasts for about 3 years, and I’m pretty amazed there aren’t more excellent reviews of these podcasts. The ‘casters put a lot of time and effort into bringing us the latest threats, and making complex ideas understandable. I particularly liked the ladies’ podcast featuring big data, facial scanning, biometrics, etc. because they stayed on topic and had a lot of excellent content; really learned a lot. Good job, Sophos! Keep up the great work!

Best security podcast

Engaging hosts that make info/cyber security fun and approachable for all. A great balance of in depth knowledge and basic background descriptions, so that even if you are very knowledgeable you can still learn and find out more about Sophos research. Sure it is a “branded” podcast but Sophos really is doing a service to the community and this is fun and engaging. Keep it up gang!
