Mistaken Identity: Heightened Awareness

In this episode, the Mistaken Identity podcast takes on security awareness. David Lee and Mike Kiser examine how to promote a security mindset the “humane way”—without the endless infomercials and educational materials created in the mid 1980s that organizations all too often use internally. The latest malware is discussed, including Bad Rabbit and the lurking Reaper Botnet, and we review the recent Estonian national ID issues. The podcast wraps up its examination of awareness with a modest proposal for the best use of misinformation campaigns on social media (“aka fake news”).
