A massive phishing campaign targeting Google accounts ripped through the internet on a Wednesday afternoon in early May. Phishing scams are pretty common. What sets this scam apart is that it is more convincing than most. The email takes users who click on the file to a legitimate Google sign-in screen to grant permissions. If you received the email or are concerned you might be targeted next, join this interactive Q&A panel to get the facts and protect your account and your organization.

We discuss:
– What is the Google Docs email scam?
– How is this scam different from other phishing scams?
– What’s the deal with Eugene Pupov?
– Who’s at risk and how can you avoid being a victim?
– What can we expect in the future?

This episode breaks down last week’s online Q & A between Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and infamous NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden on Periscope. The event, promoted by the organizers of the campaign Pardon Snowden, featured a lengthy discussion on privacy and the role of social media in sharing user data with law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

Jacob Young – who submitted a question to Snowden and had it answered, sorta.

The event also included questions from Twitter users. Jacob Young, a software engineer and privacy advocate, was one of the lucky users who submitted a question and had it answered by Snowden during the event. Jacob joins the podcast to give his reaction to Snowden’s answer to his question and also shares his thoughts on mass surveillance, privacy and more.

If you are curious about the Snowden Q&A in question and want to view the event in it’s entirety, here’s a link to the Periscope video: https://www.periscope.tv/w/1vOxwgnXeYLxB
