In this episode of Security Nation, Jen and Tod chat with Taki Uchiyama about his work on Panasonic’s Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT). They chat about educating folks on vulnerabilities associated with smart devices, the challenges of running PSIRT’s training sessions during the pandemic, and the importance of building security into internet-connected products.

Stick around for our Rapid Rundown, where Tod and Jen talk about a new white paper that shows how parking and toll apps that read license plates could inadvertently be used as a surveillance system.
