Guest Herb Stapleton, the FBI’s cyber division sector chief, joins Dave to talk about the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) annual report and its findings, Joe's story is about an ongoing IRS impersonation scam targeting educational organizations, Dave shares a story from the BBC about people using their pets names as passwords (tell us that hasn't crossed your mind or your keyboard before), and our Catch of the Day comes from the Land Down Under via Gareth and Kingsley.
