Being on the frontlines of the Cyber wars is not for the faint of heart nor for the faint of knowledge. It is no longer possible to just be reactive to threats after they rarely occur. We must be more preventive as the only reason you have not been hacked is because you haven’t notice that you already have.

Take a listen and see if you look at computers and the Internet the same way again.
