How is private medical data leaking onto the streets of Milton Keynes, what is widening the cybersecurity skills gap, and how is Australia controversially tackling the problem of drivers using their mobile phones?
All this and much much more is discussed in the latest edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by cybersecurity veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by Joe Carrigan of the Information Security Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

One comment on “Smashing Security podcast #147: Don’t Snapchat and drive”
Enjoyed the podcast today about "entry level" security positions. I do not have a degree, but I've worked in Home Health IT and administration for 20+ years. Prior to that, I worked in Sales for a major computer networking company, for a total of over 30 years experience in a computer technology related field. Thankfully, a former co-worker in Information Security with a local University recommended me for an entry level position. Best opportunity I ever had. My boss is pleased with what I've been able to contribute over the past 3 years. 100% agree that a college degree need not be required for an entry level security position. Currently working on my comptia security+ in order to obtain a promotion….and I listen to the Smashin Security Podcast every week!
