This week, the team talks about the effect of the pandemic on IT spending plans and the USA's new trickle-down approach to security

It's the end of the week, and that means it's time for 'Thank Zuck it's Friday': the tech news podcast from Computing.

On this Stuart-free episode, John and Tom talk about the coronavirus vaccine (again), before moving on to discuss how IT spending priorities have changed in the pandemic and the Colonial Pipeline hack - as well as a new executive order aiming to bolster cybersecurity across the USA.

For more audible brilliance from the Computing team, listen to the most recent episode of The Spark, where we speak to the founders of some of the world's fastest-growing and most exciting companies about their journeys.
