In The Weeds: Weekly InfoSec Round-Up 4-12-17

The deeper I get into the hacker world, the scarier some things can be. But then sometimes some good news comes along, like this gem:

Bill would block warrantless searches of Americans’ phones at borders

And I really enjoyed this little short webinar with tips on how to secure your devices connected to the internet:  http://www.techrepublic.com/videos/how-to-secure-your-internet-of-things/?ftag=TREe01923b&bhid=26093227954548321669490942282653

But then we get back to scary things, especially this one because as a writer, I’m constantly using word, industry standard and all that. http://thehackernews.com/2017/04/microsoft-word-dridex-trojan.html

Then I have to cheer when I see something like this:  http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-39576394

This one is a little bit further back from this week, but maybe we’ll make this list some day. Whew! I have some reading to do:  https://digitalguardian.com/blog/top-50-infosec-blogs-you-should-be-reading

As in week’s past, feel free to leave a comment here about any of those articles. Let’s learn from one another. Okay, have pity on the noob and let me learn from you.

Have another great week InfoSec geeks. See you soon.
