Hard to believe that this is episode 100 already! I’ll have to write a recap of the journey sometime soon.
Crazy things all over the place here at FRSecure and SecurityStudio. If you’ve been an information security consultant, or if you know one, you know that 4th quarter is a crazy time of year. Turns out, COVID-19 and 2020 is NOT the exception. We’re happily swamped.
Having said all that, we’re a day late getting the podcast out again this week. Not because we didn’t try, but because life and work get in the way sometimes.
Hope you’re happy and healthy! On the the show; Brad’s leading and these are Brad’s notes.
