Making Sense of #AppleVsFBI Issues: #DtSR Podcast

The USA v. Apple battle is one of the hottest issues currently being debated in cybersecurity, privacy, law enforcement, and perhaps even, water coolers in offices around the country. What the debate is lacking in substantive, factually-based, well-reasoned analysis, it certainly makes up for in passion and strong opinions. If you are not convinced, spend a few minutes reading the  #AppleVsFBI Twitter Feed.

The #DtSR gang jumped into this debate with Rafal Los (@Wh1t3Rabbit) and Michael Santarcangelo (@Catalyst) hosting guests Dave Kennedy (@HackingDave), Von Welch (@VonWelch), Gary (@livebeef) and Shawn Tuma (@shawnetuma) on the Down the Security Rabbit Hole podcast DtSR Episode 182 – Apple Versus the FBI.

After listening to the podcast, take a few minutes to read #AppleVsFBIwhat the government argued in response to the “opening Pandora’s Box” argument back in 1977: Just 1 iPhone? For the Government, It’s Always Just 1 [Step] – #AppleVsFBI

Cyber Law is (the new) Practical Business Law

I have had a thing for simplicity lately. A couple of months ago I was on stage speaking and something really hit me. I was watching the audience and the looks on their faces made me realize that, while what I was saying was technically accurate, to most of the people in the crowd, it sounded like gibberish — like when my mathematics-obsessed son tries to talk to me about Calculus. Or is it Trigonometry?

Who knows? And, I’ll bet that’s exactly what that audience walked out of there thinking. I vowed to do things differently. To simplify. More.

Cyber is the new reality. The business world is now fully immersed in the cyber world. Indeed, every business now has cyber issues unless it operates without a computer, data, or connection to the Internet. Can you think of any? Me either.

Since cyber is now a real-world issue that affects everyone, not just the uber-sophisticated techno-types, but real world people too, cyber law has likewise made its way into the mainstream.

The cyber world poses incalculable cyber risks for businesses and that means that cyber law is now practical business law.

That is the point of my recent article Practical Cyber Law: Yes, Even Your Clients May Face Cyber Risk Issues that was published in Volume 3: Winter 2015 Edition of Circuits, a publication of the Computer & Technology Section of the State Bar of Texas (full issue). Please give it a read and let me know your thoughts.
