Wednesday, 11am EST, LIVE with Chet Hosmer, Cyber Security Guru and Kay Van Hoesen (or via Archives/PodcastsiTunes)

A couple weeks ago I attended an eye-opening talk called “The Dark Side of Social Media” here in my hometown of Myrtle Beach, SC. They say knowledge is power, and if that’s the case, Facebook, LinkedIn and all the other social networks, with the data they’ve accumulated on us, can rule the world.

I’m still a little stunned that the presenter, the Chief Scientist for Cyber Security representing a huge international firm, is right here in our dinky tourist town of Myrtle Beach, and we lucked out because he’s coming into the studio to tell us the ins and outs of data collection and how we can protect our identities and confidential information.  You’ll be amazed how easy it is for people to know your every move.

Chet Hosmer, is the Chief Scientist / Sr Vice President at Allen Corporation of America and was the Founder of WetStone Technologies, Inc.  (Don’t worry – no boring science-talk on YAK.)

Chet has been researching and developing technology and training surrounding cyber security and digital investigation for over a decade.  He has made numerous appearances to discuss the latest cyber threats including National Public Radio’s Kojo Nnamdi show, ABC’s Primetime Thursday, NHK Japan, Crime TechTV and ABC News Australia.  He has also been a frequent contributor to technical and news stories relating to steganography and has been interviewed and quoted by IEEE, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Government Computer News, and Wired Magazine (and he’s right here in Myrtle Beach!).

The phone lines will be open for Chet to answer YOUR cyber security questions. Chat-in or call-in.
