  • 100 days left to GDPR.

    This is the talk that made aware of it for the first time. Here for my own reference and hopefully a joy to watch for others currently scrambling to comply with GDPR.

The Internet is the embodiment of our freedom. Programmers can straighten up its spine and we, the security geeks, can strengthen it. You, my friend, are the muscle […]
