The best security podcast out there!

Steve and Leo have been doing this weekly podcast for many years, and it continues to be a must-listen podcast for anyone interested in protecting their computer(s) and their company.

Deep dives into the latest vulnerabilities, plus explanations of how security works and best practices!

Obsessed

Wow. This show is for anyone who wants to get thoroughly caught up on network technology. Pick any recent episode and receive a survey of particular parts of the computer security world. Steve’s number one concern is the users’ safety. Leo and Steve explain the basics because every topic is unique and sometimes entirely new to the mainstream. I am amazed each week.
