This Week in Cyber Security and Privacy, 21-27 December, 2014


This Week in Cyber Security and Privacy's summary is released early this week, due to the holidays - with a personal message, on how cyber affects us personally. Merry Christmas! :)



Stories that didn't make it include hacking a skateboard, the FBI making "Cyber" a top priority, and the Kremlin announcing that Russia is on constant cyber alert.
