Straightforward Security

Awesome podcast! Extremely helpful if you know little about security or are a security professional. Podcaster provides tips for 'at home' security and updates on global issues impacting cybersecurity. Easy listening and thoughtfully presented topics. <3 the podcast!

Very nice short informative episodes on IT Security

This podcast is nice because of its short 5 minute episodes each focusing on a specific topic.
I even create checklists based on these episodes and then close these security holes on my end.
