Jeff Williams - Rustock

We spend a lot of time on “What the Hack with Adam Levin” talking about cyber as a consumer problem. And don’t get us wrong: It’s a dangerous time to be online. But this week’s guest talked about cyber as an adversary problem, and it flipped a switch for us. Imagine a world filled with cyber peril 24/7.

Oh right. You don’t have to. That’s the world we all live in.

Somehow, we needed to hear the myriad dangers we face when we check our email, texts, social media accounts, bank balances isn’t a test. It’s a shitshow. I’m not a self-reliant crime-fighting cybernaut, and neither are you. We’re not supposed to be able to quash the adversary problem. But we do need to know how to survive it.

We’re living in a cyber Bonfire of the Vanities. Adopting an approach to everyday internet that bears that in mind is the solution du jour on this episode of “What the Hack with Adam Levin.”
