What are Gerry and Steve talking about this week?

The guys discuss the federal government beginning to engage experts to develop a bill to address citizen’s privacy. The call out Facebook for offering multi-factor authentication and then using users phone numbers for other means. They round out with the obligation of media outlets to publish breach notifications that are sent to them, as required by HHS and federal law.

As always they end with One Cool Thing.
