On this Down the Security Rabbithole podcast we're joined by Stephen A. Ridley & Jamison Utter (yes, again with this guy) for a discussion on the finer points of Internet of Things (IoT) security ... or complete lack thereof.
If you own gadgets that are 'connected' or you are ever around them (hint: you're surrounded by things that pull IP addresses right now) then you need to listen to this podcast. Some great discussion in what was the very first podcast we recorded in 2017.

This week, Paul Hershberger joins us to talk about taking a fresh look at endpoint security for the new year. Paul has some insights into balancing risk/usability and how some of the things you've heard about endpoint may simply be ... wrong.
Join James and I as we let Paul endow us with his wisdom and experience... take some notes, this one's going to be good.

Welcome to the first Down the Security Rabbithole Podcast episode of 2017!
We would like to kick off this year, and the run to episode 250 with an episode that dissects the facts from the fiction on the topic of "Advanced Threats". With all the talk in the news about the Russians "hacking the US election" (yes, that's absolutely silly to call it that) and talk of retaliation, it's important to have a frank discussion on the merits of the concept of advanced threats.
Sit back, grab a coffee and listen. I know you'll want to listen to this one more than once!
If you have a moment, and you actually read the show notes, we would love it if you could give us a rating on iTunes or actually leave a comment on the podcast page. Get engaged on Twitter, using the hashtag #DtSR!
