Slack closes a vulnerability. Email tracking in a court martial. Restrictions on doing business with Huawei come into place. A case of responsible disclosure.

An exposed database affords an instructive case of responsible disclosure. Joe Carrigan from JHU ISI on USB device encryption and best practices. Guest is Mike Kijewski from MedCrypt on security for new and legacy medical devices.
