Steve also gave some insight into discussion of breaches in the media. Home Depot has issued a statement confirming that they have been breached, and have posted a FAQ for the breach. http://www.csoonline.com/article/2604320/data-protection/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-home-depot-data-breach.html https://corporate.homedepot.com/MediaCenter/Pages/Statement1.aspx A simple misconfiguration error led to a development server compromise for Healthcare.gov. http://www.csoonline.com/article/2602964/data-protection/configuration-errors-lead-to-healthcare-gov-breach.html If you’d like to subscribe, you can find the RSS feed here: http://sfspodcast.libsyn.com/rss or on iTunes.
