Excellent podcast. Must listen for anyone interested in the legal aspects of cybersecurity.
Consistently valuable source of cyberlaw news and analysis!
Professional and policy insight delivered well
Suspend disbelief! A group of lawyers, technology wonks and government officials (current and former) have created a podcast about cyberlaw and security that makes the time fly. I am none of those things, just a concerned and curious citizen. I look forward to each podcast to be ready both in my role as a corporate risk manager and my role on the 2nd Tuesday in November.
