Decoding Security Episode 104: Endpoint Security

In this week’s episode, we’re celebrating Halloween and National Cybersecurity Awareness Month with a scary question: what happens when cybercriminals attack the technology we rely on?

In our latest Decoding Security podcast, Website Security Research Analysts Jessica Ortega and Michael Veenstra share how to complete your security portfolio by protecting your business’s physical workstations and website applications with both endpoint and website security solutions. They also discuss recent Bad Rabbit infections and last week’s WordCamp Phoenix event.
