Welcome to Episode 28 of The Main Thing Podcast and another dose of wisdom! I’m your host, Skip Lineberg, and today I am thrilled to introduce you to my special guest, Bill Gardner.

Bill is an Assistant Professor at Marshall University, in Huntington, West Virginia, where he teaches in the Cyber Forensics and Security Degree Programs. 

Prior to joining the faculty at Marshall Univ., Bill co-founded the SecureWV/Hack3rCon cyber security conference. He also helped to start 304geeks, a non-profit technology organization based in Charleston, WV.

Bill Gardner is an active member of the cyber security community and has spoken at a number of professional conferences including AIDE, DerbyCon and Shmoocon. He has co-authored two books: "Building an Information Security Awareness Program: Defending Against Social Engineering and Technical Threats" and “Google Hacking For Penetration Testers.” He has also written a number of academic & non-academic journal articles.

Get ready! Over the next 9-minutes you will discover why Bill Gardner is, without a doubt, one of the wisest people I know.
