Voice of Security Radio: Hidden Threats on the Web

Join Curtis Franklin when he talks with Chris Oldon, CEO of The Media Trust, about the threats that lurk in the hidden -- and not-so-hidden -- corners of the web.

At this point, we'd all like to think we know about the web. After all, with more than 25 years of web experience behind us, how much more can there be to know about web security? Right? As it turns out, there's still a lot to learn, with more issues, threats, hacks and vulnerabilities coming online every day. To get an idea of just how much there is to know, we're talking with Chris Olson, CEO of The Media Trust on this week's episode of Voice of Security Radio.

Register here and mark your calendar for 3:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 13 when we'll welcome Chris Olson, CEO of the Media Trust to join us as we look at the hidden cracks and crevices where hackers can lie in wait to spring out and wreck our web experience. Will it be scary? Probably. But the fright will be worth it when we're able to take a clear look at our web applications and experiences to see how they can be made safer, more productive and more secure.
