Ep. 38: I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching me

We admit that we are not the most tech savvy of podcasts. But, that does not stop us from wanting to learn more about technology and how to better use it (or fear it - in some cases). On this episode we are joined by our first out of town guest, Joe Murdock, who is a Cyber Security Instructor in the Business School at the University of Colorado Denver. He was in town to attend a couple conferences including the world famous DefCon hacker convention that takes place in Las Vegas each year. Joe gives us a few reasons to be worried about technology, but also provides some great strategies to help us stay safe. Additionally, he provides some great resources for members of our community who want to pursue further education in the Cyber Security field.
