Live - Cybersecurity is not enough for Privacy, related topics, and Q&A

I've come to the conclusion that my approach and my thought process is different than others, from other tech Youtubers, to Cybersecurity people. So I'd like to share with you how I think and look at issues. It's OK to disagree with me. But my viewpoints are guided by certain principles and in some ways may be unique to my view of the world.

You will learn some practical issues about why I do privacy the way I do and not like the way others do it.

No rants or bashing here.
