Welcome to the first of many interviews on the #AppSec Podcast. In this episode, Robert and I interview Elena Elkina (@el0chka) on the subject of privacy. We cover the foundations of privacy, data protection, and customer data protection. This is a quick chat at around 20 minutes, in the future we’ll do a deeper dive on the crossroads of security and privacy.
