Introducing a new feature: Quick Tips With Butters

First, let me introduce myself: I’m Carrie Andersen, and I’ve been doing some work behind the curtain of Digital Self-Defense for the last several months. I help Tim out by writing blog posts, website copy, and running the podcast’s social media presence.

So, in addition to subscribing to Digital Self-Defense on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher, one of the ways that you can keep apprised of new episodes and cybersecurity news is by following the podcast page on Facebook

The Facebook page has most recently been a repository for the latest news about cybersecurity, recent hacks, and interviews with cybersecurity professionals. Last week, however, we launched a new feature: Quick Tips With Butters.

Butters is a sweet, chubby, and not-too-bright corgi that Tim and I share. And, as it turns out, she has a keen interest in helping folks learn quick and easy tips about cybersecurity that emerge from each podcast episode:

We’ll post a few of these quick tips and digestible takeaways on Facebook to accompany each of the longer Digital Self-Defense episodes. Follow there for more easy-to-follow advice from Butters!

A Brief Introduction

Welcome to the webpage for “Digital Self-Defense,” a forthcoming podcast devoted to teaching you how to keep yourself safe online. My name is Tim Honker, the creator and host of “Digital Self-Defense,” and I’m thrilled to share some my knowledge about the field of cybersecurity with all of you.

“Digital Self-Defense” will focus on a slew of topics designed to introduce everyone, from the least computer-savvy among us to those experts who simply want to learn more about the cybersecurity landscape: what it means to create a strong password (and why you really shouldn’t reuse your passwords), how to browse even sketchy websites as safely as possible, what the heck happened with Equifax and the DNC, and who the hackers and threats out in the world really are–and what you can do to protect yourself from them.

I’ll be in the studio later this month to begin recording; episodes will be released periodically throughout this spring and into 2018. Until then, follow the podcast’s Facebook page for updates on the podcast’s progress as well as relevant cybersecurity news.
