Buzzkill E17 – Why Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) with Thomas Heinz – IT Security Series

In this episode of Buzzkill, Thomas Heinz joins Hunter and Jay to continue the identity discussion.

Either way, Thomas, Jay, and Hunter dig deep on this one and try to keep this as non-technical as possible while deep diving into a highly technical topic. Join us, and let us know what questions you have so we can get you answers!

Buzzkill E9 – Communications Pitfalls and Information Technology

This episode explores important aspects of communication, including how communication between IT and the organization is vital both to implementations and ongoing operations.

Though the stereotype of the cynical, introverted and sheltered IT admin may have some legitimacy, there are increasingly many kinds of people IT.
