And Security For All

Friday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Cyber security is not only important to everyone, it is critical to the future of every American. Each show details specific points in history and provides guidance and insights of both a technical and societal nature to help you understand and address cyber security issues more effectively. Our approach makes the often misunderstood and highly technical jargon of cyber security advisories, and popular media digestible for anyone that listens.

Anyone that leverages or uses internet and cyber related services, which in today’s world is basically everyone, stands to benefit from the show. You’ll gain insight into the reality of the space around cyber security and learn more details and truths on what is actually necessary to operate and be more secure at both the business and personal levels in an ever-changing technology space. We can help you truly understand a vast technology space and be better prepared in a dynamic technology ecosystem.
