-Another show called Cyber Motherboard also discusses this topic:

-Joe describes how some clients are skeptical of technology - not using Touch ID because "it will all be hacked eventually". Also not using a password manager and not using secure passwords because they are "giving up control"

-While Sam isn’t entirely convinced, it is a security topic that we should all be paying attention to.

-Sam transitions to a story about how he had to dig into his mindset and workflow for a client he hadn’t touched in many years. It gave him a moment to see how far he had come but at the same time, showed how his lack of notes caused the investigative work to be done.
