Above is the link to today's program which we started a little earlier than usual to account to taking an appointment today which worked out for me. While we had no comments, that is OK, you're welcome to contact me any time.The file is 89.1mb.

Here are the show notes for everyone to read, with links to the stuff we covered.

See you next week!

Welcome to the security box, podcast 47. On this podcast, we're going to talk about Security. A video which I found on Ted Talk's youtube channel will lead this discussion. We're also going to talk about an article from Lastpass talking about protecting your business from data breach trends. It talks about something we've talked about, supply chain attacks. Speaking of supply chain attacks, Jennifer talks about our top story from our show notes, and we'll address any concerns from that as well. We'll have news, notes, questions, comments and more. Want to leave a message by phone? Call 602-887-5198 to do so. Thanks so much for listening!
