Episode 7 — Breach Week Special!
Perfectionism is the enemy of publishing on time. It’s another week and we’ve got a solid hour of discussion about the stuff that’s important in the world of infosec this week.
DISCLAIMER: It’s not that explicit, but you may want to use headphones if you’re at work.
ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER: In case it is unclear, this is the story of 4 opinionated infosec pros who have sufficient opinions of their own they don’t need to speak for anyone except themselves. Ok? Good.
