Our newest episode is out, and this time we are joined by a very special guest, @TSGouge who discuss social engineering for companies and on the nation state scale. Victoria reveals her new plans to take over the world and Brent tries to keep up with these gals, who are straight up geniuses. We also pontificate on Syria and the potential for cyber-fallout from the action going on over there.
Look for these sessions to be released more frequently and on topics that are in the news. We hope you enjoy them, and feel free to give us feedback via Twitter (@lbhuston or @microsolved) and/or via the comments section.
Check out this audio blog post between Brent Huston and Victoria Loewengart as they discuss this year’s Derbycon. There is a special segment towards the end of the conversation where they discuss females attending Derbycon, what to expect and attempt to counter some of the bad news about sexism at conferences going around these days.
Once again, Victoria Lowengart (@gisobiz) and I team up to discuss events in the real world and how they impact cyber threats. This time around we talk North Korea, Anonymous and touch on Industrial Control Systems. We also give a quick preview of Op Petrol. Check it out here:
Victoria Loewengart (@gisobiz) from AKOTA Technologies and myself (@lbhuston) decided we would start a podcast series to discuss correlation between real world actions and cyber-activity of an illicit nature (“attacks”). This is the first episode which discusses why we think this is a worthy topic for exploration, how it might lead to predictive information security posture improvement and how we got here.
This episode also covers a real time event that occurred while we were recording that may (or may not) relate to attacks experienced in the time between recording sessions.
We hope to keep working on it, but this is a first rough attempt, so don’t expect CNN podcast polish. This is a chance for you to stay in touch with a new movement that represents a clear line of evolution for the information security problems of today.
Stay tuned. We hope to record more episodes as the project progresses.
Today, I got to do something pretty cool! I got to record a quick interview about the history of IT and what some of today’s technologies look like through the eyes of someone who has done IT for the last 40 years. Even cooler than that, I got to interview MY MOM!
Check this out; as she discusses mainframes, punch cards and tape vaults, insights about mainframe authentication and even quality control in the mainframe environment. She even gives advice to IT folks approaching retirement age and her thoughts on the cloud.
She closes with a humorous insight into what she thinks of my career and when she knew I might be a hacker. 🙂
It’s good stuff, and you can download the audio file (m4a format) by clicking here.
Thanks for listening and let me know if you have other IT folks, past or present, you think we should be talking to. I’m on Twitter (@lbhuston) , or you can respond in the comments.
