Data Breaches of the 21st Century – OPM Ripples through the FedGov – CF023

This week on Cyber Frontiers Jim and Christian take some time to discuss what has quickly become a favorite past time – data breaches! With the LastPass breach and OPM breach both making waves in the news (one more so than the other) – we took the time to analyze the impact of these two breaches and how they are inherently different. We analyzed the social impact for the average guy, and discussed some of the pitfalls that continue to plague the data breach incidents we keep seeing in the media. We provide the analysis and stay pretty high-level with the tech this week – so it should make for an easy and enjoyable listen!

Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future Through an Academic Perspective!   Christian Johnson, a student at the University of Maryland will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
