Are you sick of Anonymous-related news? Well, I am. In this week’s WatchGuard Security Week in Review, I purposely ignore Anonymous stories to talk about other security news. If you are interested in new government cyber policies, major web breaches, or FBI controlled malware networks, watch this week’s episode below.
If you’d rather read, the Episode Reference section contains links for this week’s stories. I’ve even thrown in links for this week’s Anonymous stories, even though I ignore them in the video.
As usual, we’d love to hear from you in the comment section, and feel free to share this video podcast with your friends if you like it. (Video Runtime: 9:23)
