DirtySecurity: Kip Boyle on Avoiding Cyber-Cooties and Risk

We all think we are working hard to protect our data inside our corporate networks. But are we putting the same time and effort into protecting ourselves outside those walls? Risk doesn’t stop when you walk out of the office. Once those cyber-cooties get on you, they will travel with you everywhere you go.

In this week’s episode of DirtySecurity, Edward Preston sits down with Kip Boyle, Founder and CEO at  Cyber Risk Opportunities and author of the new book Fire Doesn’t Innovate. They chat about cyber-hygiene, the ways that risk travels beyond the walls of your corporate network, and how public wi-fi is similar to a less-than-clean municipal swimming pool.
