Lock and Code S1Ep10: Pulling apart the Internet of Things with JP Taggart

Why Data Privacy Day matters: A Lock and Code special with Mozilla, DuckDuckGo, and EFF

You can read our full-length blog here about the importance of Data Privacy Day and data privacy in general

Today is a special day, not just because January 28 marks Data Privacy Day in the United States and in several countries across the world, but because it also marks the return of our hit podcast Lock and Code, which closed out last year with an episode devoted to educators and the struggles of distance learning.

For Data Privacy Day this year, we knew we had to do something big.

After all, data privacy is far from a new topic for Malwarebytes Labs, which ramped up its related coverage more than two years ago, giving readers in-depth analyses of the current laws that shape their data privacy rights, the proposed legislation that could grant them new rights, the corporate heel-turns on privacy, the big-name mishaps, and the positive developments in the space, whether enacted by companies or authored by Congress members.

Along the way, Malwarebytes also released products that can help bolster online privacy, and we at Labs wrote about some of the many best practices and tools that people can use to maintain their privacy online.

We’ve been in this space. We know its actors and advocates. So, for Lock and Code, we thought we’d give them the opportunity to talk.

Today, in the return of our Lock and Code podcast, we gathered a panel of data privacy experts that includes Mozilla Chief Security Officer Marshall Erwin, DuckDuckGo Vice President of Communications Kamyl Bazbaz, and Electronic Frontier Foundation Director of Strategy Danny O’Brien.

Together, our guests talk about the state of online privacy today, why online privacy information can be so hard to find, and how users can protect themselves. Tune in to hear all this and more on the latest episode of Lock and Code, with host David Ruiz.
