About the Show

The Shared Security Show is hosted by Tom Eston and Scott Wright since 2009. Back in 2009 (and when the show was named the Social Media Security Podcast) social media was fairly new to everyone so we saw a need to provide news and education on social media security and privacy.  Today, we have much more than social media in our lives. Smart devices, applications, privacy concerns, and buzzwords like “IoT” (Internet of Things) dominate the headlines daily.

The name “Shared Security” comes from the idea that cybersecurity and privacy is a shared responsibility and that we all need to explore the trust that we put in people that may use new technology against us. It’s our mission to provide you the latest cybersecurity and privacy news and interviews with cybersecurity and privacy experts with timely tips and advice in a brief weekly format. The goal of this show is to help you stay more secure and private in our connected world.

We offer three formats of the show. First is our weekly edition, hosted by Tom Eston, which covers the top three cybersecurity and privacy news stories from the week in about 10 to 15 minutes, or less. Next, is our monthly edition which covers weekly show topics in more depth with co-host Scott Wright. Finally, is our YouTube edition where you can watch each episode, guest interviews, and more.
