If it's springtime in New England, it must be time for faculty member Kevin Beaver to join us on the podcast to examine the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report better known as the DBIR. This week we dive into the 10th annual report and talk about what the findings say about our seeming inability to eradicate even basic security shortcomings like lousy passwords, porous web apps and our insatiable penchant for clicking on stuff. Any stuff.

Kevin and I also spend a few minutes talking about the Trump administration's efforts to improve security in federal government agencies and departments. And Kevin tells us why his passion for racing souped-up Mazda Miatas maybe isn't so crazy after all.

    Wonderfully entertaining and experientially accurate. It's great to hear what is actually happening out there versus and academic discussion of what 'should' be happening.
