#572 How To Stop Yourself from Getting Hacked at Home with Dr Eric Cole, CEO of Secure Anchor and World-Renowned Cybersecurity Expert
I have no idea what people know about me and what people don't. I've pretty much giving up caring about most aspects of my privacy because it largely feels outside of my control. Perhaps this is laziness, perhaps this is acceptance, perhaps this is freedom. I really am not sure.
I remember hearing, I think it was from John McAfee, that I should expect that at any given time there are at least 5 people watching me through the camera in my phone. I heard this maybe 5 years ago and so I assume at this point at least one of them has broadcast me at my very worst to parts unknown.
Maybe you're the same as me and don't know whether you should care about your privacy or not. It's the strangest thing that we're all targets but we'll never know the faces of our attackers. We need help and that's where Dr. Eric Cole comes in.
Dr Eric Cole has over 30 years of cybersecurity experience and has worked in this field for companies including the CIA, McAfee and Lockheed Martin. He's the leader of the cyber defenders.
