If you’ve listened to the show more than once, you know that our host Adam Levin always talks about credit freezes. It should come as a surprise that he just froze his credit this week. This episode talks about the assumptions underlying our security decisions and that old truism that to assume makes an ass out of you and me.
Even the most cautious among us can have gaps in our cyber-defenses, and we’re no exception. Listen as we take our turns in the no-shame zone and discuss how a false sense of security can leave you even more vulnerable to hackers, scammers and identity thieves.
