IoT Device Security

IoT is a huge topic, especially for enterprises. Many have been doing it for years, and many more are interested in doing it for the first time. Companies like Target have proven that it is often these smaller and non-obvious machines that are being used to penetrate systems and cause havoc or steal information. Utilizing an air-gap or analog segregations only make manipulations more difficult to detect.

Mentoring and Programming Bootcamps

This week on the MS Dev Show, we talk to Sarah Dutkiewicz about mentoring and programming boot camps. This is an interesting discussion since these are normally two separate discussions most of the time.
