    Joshua Steinman (@JoshuaSteinman), founder and CEO of Galvanick, joins Lucas Bagno and Ian Cinnamon to discuss:

    - The history of cybersecurity at big industrial companies and how he is building “Splunk for industrial systems” to solve that problem.

    - His time at the National Security Council, what motivated him to work in government, and his work creating an “embassy in Silicon Valley.”

    - The concept of “unrestricted warfare” and the fact that the Chinese government thinks about war as a continuous process across many dimensions while the US typically thinks of war on only one dimension.

    - Information operations and how they have affected public opinion in the US on various topics.
