Professor Jonathan Katz, who is also the Director of the Maryland CyberSecurity Center, was interviewed on the The Cyber Wire Daily Podcast, on January 20th, 2016.  Senior Media Producer Dave Bittner spoke with Katz about security and authentication and how users can protect themselves and their data.  Katz talked about about two-factor authentication (in which a system requires not only a password, but another means to identify the user--such as a text message to a mobile device) to protect user information from possible attackers. He talked about the primacy of passwords, and encouraged users to be mindful of the ways that other people can steal their data.
