But, even very smart, savvy people can be victimized by the scammers. In the area of cybersecurity, this is particularly true. The cyber criminals are always changing their tactics to breach as many systems as possible so they can steal information which leads to money. Our guest today has a fascinating story to tell.

He is a highly sought-after expert on cybersecurity and has appeared on all of the major networks as well as in the Wall Steet Journal, Forbes, New York Times, and the list goes on.

He has also been a victim of multiple hackings and has detailed them in his wonderful book, HACKED AGAIN: IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE EVEN A CYBERSECURITY EXPERT, which we will talk a lot about today inside this episode of The Scammercast, on The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network!
