In a busy news week for infosec news, Dave and Jeff had a hard time selecting the stories to cover for this week’s edition of the Transatlantic Cable podcast. However after some deliberation, they were able to narrow it down to four stories that hit on some of our favorite topics: IoT, Smart Home and epidemics.
To kick off the podcast, they look at a new patent filed by Amazon that may look to have everyone’s favorite in-home voice assistant play doctor. From there they look at a recent breach suffered by the Pentagon and then jump back on the medical bandwagon and look at the fallout of the WannaCry epidemic on the NHS. They wrap the week staying on the British side of the pond where a smart lock company locked customers out of their homes.

As mentioned in last week’s podcast, we have a special podcast for this week since the Kaspersky Lab annual corporate communications meeting. This year, we were in Dresden, Germany, so Dave and I sat down with the members of the Kaspersky Arabic Podcast, Ahmed and Baseem to discuss privacy.
During the talk, the four of us looked at the different ways that we look at privacy as well as how social networks and bad parenting may lead to bullying later in life for our kids. The takes come from different areas of the world where we have grown up as well as how we feel personally about the topic.
