This week I'm joined by by old friend and tech journalism colleague Dennis Fisher to talk about phone fraud and "card not present" scams and examine cutting edge tools to defend against these growing threats to the enterprise. We also talk security in the IoT space and take a no-holds-barred look at the state of infosec coverage in today's technology trade press.

As always just back from some exotic location, well-known IANS faculty member Jayson Street this week regales us with stories of intrigue from the world of physical security penetration testing and tells us how every enterprise should approach security from the front door to the loading dock.
