Sarah Armstrong-Smith: Making Mistakes and Managing Mayhem
Lisa speaks with one of the leading ladies in infosec, Sarah Armstrong-Smith.
What can we learn from incidents outside of cyber security?
Do we see the same patterns of mistakes and oversights play out over and over?
What should we all be thinking about when we plan for the worst?
Sarah and Lisa discuss all things incident response, a topic they are hugely passionate about. Sarah talks about the mistakes made in some of the most horrific incidents such as Grenfell Towers in the UK and we examine how quickly mistakes can spiral out of control. Are we also too quick to blame people? Was it the people who failed or the process? Enjoy!

Nelufar Hedayat : Having Lunch With Traffickers.
Lisa speaks with the star of a top Netflix documentary series (The Traffickers), Nelufar Hedayat. What is it like to come face to face with some of the most dangerous traffickers and organised criminals? How do you track them down when they don’t want to be found? How do you cope with seeing the dark side of human nature? Nelufar explains how protocol means she has to sit down for lunch with these people after filming which begs the questions “what do you talk to these people about off camera?”
Hear about how she investigated cases of organ trafficking, how the international adoption business can be a front for human trafficking and how journalists like Nelufar go about tracking down international criminals that don’t want to be found! Nelufar also shares her personal story as a refugee from Afghanistan to being a badass journalist which will leave you inspired and in awe of what she herself has achieved.
