I just posted a new Rootcast on combating spyware in the enterprise. During this 15-minute interview, Debra Shinder, technology consultant and security expert, discusses the increasing threat spyware poses to the enterprise. Mrs. Shinder explains the differences between spyware and viruses and outlines the different spyware types. She also answers TechRepublic members' questions about fighting spywarecovering topics from Windows Defender to third-party spyware solutions. As a former police officer and author of Scene of the Cybercrime: Computer Forensics Handbook, Debra Shinder brings a unique perspective to the spyware discussion that I think IT pros and end users alike will find useful.
