Good morning, everybody. I hope you had a fantastic weekend on this episode episode perspective. This is continuing our cyber security Basics. We got a couple episodes are not already. We covered have the goals of cybersecurity recovered threat some risks and vulnerabilities exploits have we also covered passwords on a circle back to the last big concept or overcurrent concept? Probably not the last perspective now, this is something totally honest with you at cybersecurity struggles with constantly, so I'll give you a good example example.

I'm just finished up earlier this morning. I'm on today's top vpns and Wi-Fi networks. Crazy crazy topics to talk about to a general audience at but we're on the fact that Facebook's because they had a number of issues around a privacy specifically they were explicitly tracking what apps you were using what site you were visiting in order to build their profile.

So, and in the face of the people thinking that depends were for privacy, right? So we were talking about the challenges of connecting straight to Wi-Fi and how it was adjusting your trust and never challenges when you talk to cyber-security. You should never connect to public. Maybe that's good advice maybe percent of most used to make the choice.

That's right for them. I am so on that issue. I've been a Wi-Fi is General encrypted. If you need to have a password to access the Wi-Fi that normally needs it to her. But all those schemes under Wi-Fi are broken in one way or another and we know that they aren't updated.

So connecting to Wi-Fi is risky because you don't know who's always be making sure that an important sites just like on a secure connection between you and you don't want to be tracked it and you don't use a VPN. Is it except for the fact that you need to trust that be Provider.

So do you know when trust VPN provider and then all the traffic from the VPN secure before the traffic? So it's not a flat. This is the answer that's sort of the challenge with perspective abilities and thoughts as well. So there was another Apache struts vulnerability now, you probably haven't heard of Apache struts, but it is a framework that developers use to cut down on the amount of CO2.

They have the right organizations in really big applications. But this is the third or fourth massive vulnerability has had in the last year and it get a free easy one to take advantage of to exploit with minimal effort as we know from episode. He's Apache struts anymore. And that's not the right perspective.

You need to put the information in context for the people can make the right decision. If you lose perspective if you start to say this is the way it has to be for everybody and not make people understand. The choices are the trade-offs of the context in which you're making these decisions that starts to make things really difficult to perceive in a logical manner driven Manner and that's an underline challenge when it comes to security not just the lack of perspective but the lack of data to make data-driven decisions.

So when we talked about me, so, you know, you need a minor ability something wrong. You need an exploit some way to take advantage of that thing. That's wrong. We can figure out if under building pretty straightforward. We can most the time now whether or not there's an exploit, but worse.

Is there a threat normally for that. You would have to evaluate a ton of data. If you think of physical Insurance like car insurance, the insurance providers have a massive amount of men in their 40s this particular neighborhood have a moderate level of risk Sunday driving profile of everybody in that neighborhood taught me how to make a better security which makes it even harder to maintain perspective because we're dealing fairly with what-ifs risk assessment scale or sometimes simply not there but cybersecurity perspective is a real key to understanding the Shawn Orso continuing in the themes of the basics of getting that Foundation.

You need to understand that a lot of cyber security perspective. It takes a lot of effort for people to step back if they wait a minute. It's not the end of the world. The sky isn't falling. You need to make an informed decision wake me up at 4 podcast listeners, and as always everybody else you can hit me up on here what you think about what you think about the cyber security Basics segment that we've been doing definitely want to know what you want to hear next.

There's a ton of stuff where we can go with this basic series under the Trend Micro handle on and probably some other places just to make it a nice little tidy, you know, basically a 101 course, but let me know. I hope you are guys are set up for a fantastic day.

I will talk to you online. I'll see you on the show tomorrow. Good morning, everybody. I hope you had a fantastic weekend on this episode episode perspective.
