Episode 43: What’s Hackable

Ted Harrington joins us again on the podcast to talk about his new book Hackable. We discuss how to take a complicated subject and simplify it to make it accessible for anyone to understand. We discuss the perils of doing only Black Box pentesting and how choosing a security partner to help with your security strategy is one of the most important decisions you make in a security plan. We discuss how his company Independent Security Evaluators was able to hack into 732 bitcoin wallets despite the extreme statistical improbability of guessing the private key securing those wallets. We also discuss some of the easter egg interactive aspects of the book (no spoilers). Check out the book and all of Ted Harrington’s channels at HackableBook.com.
