Martin and I finally recorded our first podcast in the wee hours of the afternoon, improving both our coherence and my ability to have a beer. There were a few technical difficulties so the quality is a little off, and we’re working on figuring out how to record with high quality across state lines.
This week we focused on the FUD and reality around the recent video released by DHS showing a power generator frying due to a remote cyberattack. Martin also added a new regular segment, PCI is a TLA, in honor of his new job as a PCI auditor.
