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!
