Down the Rabbithole - Episode 2 - "Can You Be Hacked Out of Business?"


This edition of the podcast doesn't hold back.  We ask "Can someone be hacked out of business?" and as usual we don't really like the answers we come up with.  While Martin, Rob and I have been in most every aspect of security for just over a combined 3 decades, we end up with a conslusion that I don't think any of us are comfortable with least not that we were willing to say out loud, until now.  So is it possible?  Is DigiNotar being "hacked out of business" as Dark Reading suggests all FUD?  Listen and find out where we go with this topic!
