Morgan Wright is an internationally recognized expert on cyber security strategy, cyber terrorism, identity theft and privacy. He brings vast knowledge and insight into the space of cyber activity.

Michael and Morgan start the podcast off talking about cyber footprints. People don’t realize that there are countless ways to steal personal identities. You don’t even need to be present anymore to become a criminal. The Chinese hacking US government databases is just one of a few examples used by Morgan to illustrate the point. Morgan says that there is no accountability in the government, which is a major contributor to why some of these hacks are able to take place.

Email is the next topic. How safe is it? Email is one of the best ways to attack someone. Companies are being hacked and having money stolen in the millions of dollars through email. Scams can come in all forms, from flat out asking for money to relationship scams. Glitches in security and technology are sometimes even known, it just comes down to if the cost to repair is worth the reward.

Michael brings the conversation back to security and asks Morgan to elaborate on Morgan was tasked with confronting Congress and explaining the lack of security within that particular government website. He went before congress to prove how ill secure the website system was. When talking about the hearings and committee for setting up the new healthcare system Morgan said, “There was nobody really in charge, there was lack of control, and oversight… It was built for failure from the very beginning.”
