Guest Speaker for University of South Wales (Information Security Research Group) - CyberSecurity and the Payment Card Industry

I had the pleasure to be invited as a guest speaker to the University of South Wales in order to give a talk about CyberSecurity and the Payment Card Industry more specifically for the Information Security Research Group (ISRG).
The talk included an introduction to the Payment Card Industry (PCI),  Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). The participant had an opportunity to understand what is an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and last but not least a PCI Forensics Investigator (PFI).

Download videos from online resources, such as YouTube, Dailymotion, etc..

Among the most popular video hosting resource on the web is YouTube, being the third most popular website in the world. Sometimes we find ourselves in need to download a video in order to be able to watch it offline. 

There are several online services which allow us to save a copy of our favourite videos but not all of them allows you the option of downloading in different qualities and formats.
