The technology industry is full of commonly-held beliefs that, if followed, should make systems and users safe; however, this isn't always the case. For example: "A strong password will secure your account" is not true if the server is compromised and your data is stolen.

Joshua Meyer has had a passion for technology since an early age. Growing up in a small town in Maryland, Josh spent a lot of his time learning about different computing concepts.

Josh is a Security Analyst at Independent Security Evaluators, a firm of security specialists that provide a wide range of services including custom security assessments and software development.
