In this episode...

Some sad news to announce this week as Mike Gioia will be leaving the TechTalk4Teachers podcast as he has accepted another position at a different university. Mike has been a great addition to our podcast and has regularly shared his expertise about information security with our audience. Mike will certainly be missed and we wish him the best in his new adventures.

#InvisibleTechSupport We begin this episode with a THANK YOU to all the tech support people out there who worked extremely hard over the holiday season to perform maintenance and upgrades to networking and other information systems applications. Without you we could not do our jobs effectively.

Security Spotlight
Mike will give his last Security Spotlight and we will wrapup by sharing our Technology Picks of the Week.
