One year ago, a couple of buddies and I thought we should make a weekly security podcast. Today, and hundreds of thousands of downloads later, we celebrate our first birthday. :)
Is Face ID racist? Has Mr Robot infected your Firefox browser? Has Microsoft pushed a buggy password manager onto your Windows PC?
All this and much much more is discussed in the special first birthday edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by original co-host Vanja Švajcer.

OneLogin provides Single Sign On for customers like Airbus, Royal Mail, BSI, and Dun and Bradstreet. With hundreds of apps being used in the typical workplace, and the average user having to remember about 40 different passwords, we all know that if we don’t have a product to remember passwords they end up in spreadsheets, stored in emails, or left on post-it notes. And that is a security nightmare. OneLogin allows IT to say which users have access to which applications at what time and also enforce two factor authentication. So even if credentials are compromised, hackers can’t get access to those corporate services. And, by connecting to Active Directory, access to all of these services is de-provisioned as soon as someone leaves the organisation.
