The pizza is mediocre, but that honey? Mmmm

After more than 40 years, the Beau Jo's on Colorado Blvd is closing. This leaves us wondering, are there any other places with such mediocre food that are so popular? (White Castle maybe?) This week we learned that Comcast is launching an IoT network in Denver, the City's auditors find security issues with the 311 phone system, SecureSet's Alex Kreilin is famous, Automox officially comes out of stealth, and a whole lot more.

Feature interview:

In early June we covered a fascinating blog post by Coalfire: The Anatomy of Paying a Ransom. The story so interested us that we reached out to contacts at Coalfire to meet the author. Bryce Bearchell is the security consultant who worked this incident and wrote the blog. In this week's interview Bryce gives us more context about his role at Coalfire, the company that was hit by this attack, how they recovered, and lessons for the rest of us, so we don't suffer the same fate.
