Here on the Scammercast, we talk a lot about how to prevent scams and fraud from occurring in the first place. But, even very smart, savvy people can be victimized by the scammers. In the area of cybersecurity, this is particularly true.
The cyber criminals are always changing their tactics to breach as many systems as possible so they can steal information which leads to money. Our guest today has a fascinating story to tell.
Scott Schober is the President and CEO of Berkeley Varitronics Systems, a leading provider of advanced, world-class wireless test and security solutions. Scott invented the company’s cell phone detection tools used to enforce ”no cell phone” policies in prisons and secure government buildings.
He is a highly sought after expert on cybersecurity and has appeared on all of the major networks as well as in the Wall Steet Journal, Forbes, New York Times, and the list goes on. He has also been a victim of multiple hackings and has detailed them in his wonderful book, HACKED AGAIN: IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE EVEN A CYBERSECURITY EXPERT, which we will talk a lot about today inside this episode of The Scammercast, on The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network!
