This week's podcast was recorded and prepared at the GovCERT Symposium in Rotterdam. This week's feature guest is David Rice, the author of Geekonomics.

Rice argues the pervasiveness of software and systems vulnerabilities are a symptom of a market failure, and the only way out is for governments to introduce economic incentives -- similar to those being considered to reduce carbon emissions -- to whip the vendors in shape.

This week's sponsor guest is Microsoft's Chief Privacy Strategist Peter Cullen. Peter joins the show to discuss, perhaps not surprisingly, privacy in the digital age.
