EP 154: The Most Famous Hacker Gives Tips For Personal Cyber-Security
Kevin Mitnick is the world's most famous hacker and a leading cyber security expert. Today he’ll reveal how vulnerable you might be to a security hack, and he’ll share some fairly simple steps you can take to protect yourself. He’ll discuss what kind of information companies like Uber and Facebook are gathering from you (even when you’re not using their apps), how your digital photos show more than you may think, and whether your computer, your phone, and even your television might be listening to everything you say - even when they’re not on. Plus why you should never use public wifi, why the documents you store in the cloud may not have 4th Amendment protection, and why anyone with $200,000 to spend, could hack the cellphone of the most powerful man in the world.
