Hey there. It’s time for another episode of the UNSECURITY Podcast, and we’ve got a special guest joining us this week!
Too many things going on to mention right now. Cool things going on at FRSecure and SecurityStudio, but I haven’t really had the time to process it all yet. In my last meeting of the day (2/22), a friend asked me how my day went. I couldn’t answer. Things went from this to that so fast, I never took a second to think about how my day was. Weird. Have you ever had this happen to you?
Well, let’s get to what we came here for…
The notes for episode 120 of the UNSECURITY Podcast.
