SSCC 61 - Sony, Honda, Mac Defender and best practices on securing your organization

Filed Under: Apple, Data loss, Malware, OS X, Podcast

Sophos Security Chet Chat logoOn this week's Chet Chat I interview one of our most experienced technical support account managers and discuss why "we're doing it wrong". Paul has worked as a security architect and defended against a slew of targeted attacks in very large environments.

Security is a process not a purchase... Many of us have acquired state-of-the-art high quality tools and yet we fall victim to everyday threats. Paul shares his philosophy on the techniques you can use to get the most out of your security investments.

As usual I also cover the week's news including the latest attacks on Sony, the data loss event at Honda Canada and the evolution of the fake anti-virus threat facing Apple Mac OS X users.
