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.
