Our next podcast guest, prominent cybersecurity expert Gus Hunt, also shares our enthusiasm for all things encrypted. With experience working across the C-Suite in both government and private roles within the CIA and Accenture, Gus provides a unique outlook on both the case for strong encryption and the challenges it can present to law enforcement agencies.
