Privacy & Toxic Data with Michelle Finneran Dennedy
A great discussion point that didn't make it to air from the original 2021. Not all data is of equal value to the organization and the viable shelf life is seldom tracked or even discussed.
This espresso shot takes a humorous look at a serious question about privacy considerations during the development cycle and check out the original full episode with privacy thought leader Michelle Finneran Dennedy.
Classifying and effectively communicating enterprise security risk with Paul Mercer
Communication isn't effective until the receiver understands the message well enough to take action. That pretty much sums up the challenge facing many risk professionals today, something Paul Mercer resolved, out of necessity, by building risk management software that is proving to be a welcome solution for many notable customers.
Mr. Mercer is no stranger to the front lines of risk management, starting with the Royal Navy then extensive risk & crisis consulting for international clients. Well known ESRM practitioners are also recognizing the value of Mercer's approach to digital safety and security risk management.
Redefining the risk management business partnership with Rachelle Loyear
Co-author of the original book on Enterprise Security Risk Management, it only made sense to have Rachelle be the first Caffeinated Risk guest. Like many guests, there was just too much material for a 30 minute episode. This espresso shot encore digs into that nuanced topic of truly partnering with business stakeholders.
Resilience as a Risk Management Stratgey
Anyone with a bit of time in the security industry is well acquainted with Murphy's law but crisis management specialists are who you call when things suddenly get very real. While common security guidance advocates protection, readying your organization to weather the inevitable failure in prevention measures starts with resilience.
international crisis management thought leader Alexandra Hoffman and 2022 IFSEC Global Influencer and Meta's head of Global Security Protective Intelligence Tim Wenzel dive deep into what resilience really means at the organizational level.
Security folks are fond of saying "it's not if but when ...", listen in to learn more about how to prepare your organization for that eventuality from those who have been there with some of the biggest companies in the world.
Infrastructure Resilience and Ethical Considerations
Recorded two days after the July 2022 nationwide telecom outage, co-hosts Tim and Doug explore the deeper ramifications of losing access to the very services that are so tightly integrated into our lifestyle. While the complete root cause of the Rogers' outage may never be publicly shared, most organizations face similar constraints, leading to a discussion about ethics and our shared commitment to the common good.

GRC Program Development and Implementation with Josh Sokol
Sooner or later every risk management professional faces the hard reality that comprehensive risk management programs can't be implemented on spreadsheets. A corporate vice president mandate, minus the funding, started Josh Sokol on a journey that turned his initial platform solution into an opensource project that morphed into a commercial venture.
While meeting the risk management and compliance needs of organizations large and small, the Simple Risk founder remains committed to a practical approach for stewarding cyber security issues and mentoring the next generation of security professionals.
This episode explores the true GRC platform needs -- not the marketing -- and the cyber security executive's role in enterprise risk management.
