6: The Strongest Link with Brian Honan Security Stories

    • Technology

On today's show we have a brilliant interview with a famous, altruistic Irishman who wears cool glasses and has a nice variety of white hats.  

Nope, it's not Bono, but are lucky enough to have Brian Honan as our guest on this episode. We cover a wide variety of topics including the genesis of the Irish Emergency Response Team, his thoughts on why companies get such a bad hounding when they suffer a data breach, running a company and managing a team, and why the cybersecurity industry needs more accountability. 

And finally for our "On This Day" feature, which is when Ben and I jump in the Delorean and visit a significant cybersecurity event in the pasto, we go all romantic, sort of. Because  this month is the 20 year anniversary of a certain worm called "I love you" or the "Love Bug", or indeed the "Love letter for you" - a cyber attack which ended up infecting over 10 million personal Windows computers.   Discover the unique story behind this attack, and the additional part of the story from only a few days ago.
