Missing Audio?
Yeah, someone needs to get a transcript or subtitles onto this audio. I really can barely hear anything. Are there any links to the words in this little video ? Could you ping us when you put it back up?

Risks to take
We have to be aware that every single process that we undertake comes with its own risks. This simply means that we cannot put a guarantee that what we are handling right now is 100% safe. We can be made aware by the many initiatives done by security and technology companies but at the end of the day, know that we can never be at the 100% mark when security is concerned.
