Have you been hacked? Probably. The website Have I Been Pwned is one of the first places to check to see if you’ve been part of a data breach. And chances are you have been. Troy Hunt joins Safe Mode to talk about why he started the public database of breaches and how he hopes it will help people become more secure online. Elias Groll, CyberScoop senior editor, and Mike Farrell, CyberScoop’s editor-in-chief, discuss recent moves in Washington to convince Big Tech to prioritize safety and security when developing artificial intelligence technology.
