Bear tracks all over the US Government’s networks. Pandas and Kittens and Bears, oh my... Emotet’s back. Spyware litigation. A few predictions.

Show Notes

Ben Yelin looks at hyper realistic masks designed to thwart facial recognition software. Our guest Neal Dennis from Cyware wonders if there really isn't a cybersecurity skills gap. And a quick look at some more predictions.
