    thanks Naked security for the updates

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just

    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

      Our Sixty Second Security videos only cover content that we have already written up. You'll find links to articles about each of the subjects covered underneath the video with the heading 'In this episode'.

      Thanks for the compliment. I think.

      But three points if I may, since you ask me to write more.

      Firstly, the videos are meant to be a bit of weekend fun, but with a serious side: they present security commentary swiftly, in a face-to-face way. A lot of readers like that, because it gives them ideas on how to respond verbally and succinctly when they want to "stick up for security"- at work, at home, in the pub, at the bus stop - when they hear others complaining that security is too hard.


      Secondly, I DO write more, causing some people to say, "Why waste your intelligence churning out article after article when you could teach us while make us smile by posting short videos to your blog as well."

      Thirdly, if you really want to read and not watch, just click the "Captions" icon in the video player. Groove at the witty phraseology! Marvel at the careful choice of words to fit the time allowed! Be amazed at the accuracy of the transcription! Listen without sound! Astonish your friends!

      PS. If you want more serious stuff, go to the search bar and put in the word "Anatomy".
