PVCSec EP 33: ICANN. Again.

In this EP: starting your own infosec consulting firm, ICANN is hacked (again), Brain Wallet, and Future Crimes.

Dear Friends,

Welcome to episode 33 in a collector’s series.

Topic one: tarting your own infosec consulting gig

Paul texted Ed about starting their own infosec consulting gig. Ed gave some tips for doing so.

Topic two: ICANN hacked again

Why is no one covering this topic? Was it because of, “hacker summer camp?”
