    Semper Vigilantes - Strategic Defense in a Cyber Conflict

We use all our time this week to discuss the situation at hand and take a hard look at what you should have already done foundationally.

    2019 Threat Recap - RATs, Turtles, and Worms!

    2019 Threat Recap - RATs, Turtles, and Worms!

    Recorded 12/20/19 - In a shorter year-end EP, we take a look back and a look forward. It seems everyone else wants to break out the crystal ball this time of year and prognosticate the coming year’s threat landscape. We don’t have one of those, so we used a Magic 8-ball, but we’re pretty confident the results are as-good or better. However, most of the EP is dedicated to going through the notable security events of the past year. We take a look at the lasting effects and lessons learned from 2019’s biggest threats.

    Inside Incident Response

    Inside Incident Response

    Craig is out sick/injured/fighting robots (actually all three), so we brought in Sean Mason from Talos IR to talk shop today and give you the inside scoop on IR (and Sean’s next-level beard care regimen). How do incidents affect the enterprise and consumers? How has the advent of widespread ransomware fundamentally shifted the burden of responsibility in the c-suite and what have been the outcomes? What does a responder have in the bag when they arrive on-site?

    I Choose YOU! Attackers view of targets, RLAs, and scam season

    I Choose YOU! Attackers view of targets, RLAs, and scam season

    Recorded 11/8/19 - Joel is out on PTO, so Mitch, Matt, Nigel, and Craig carry the banner this EP discussing how attackers approach targets like investors looks at portfolio. We also talk about how the most recent off-cycle elections in the US give us a glimpse of improvements and changes in election security. Finally, we take a quick look at popular scams and how attackers use seasonality to increase the relevance of their scam for emotional response.

    Please Welcome to the Show… Talos Incident Response

    Please Welcome to the Show… Talos Incident Response

    Recorded 10/25/19 - Today is a bit different. We normally keep things pretty neutral on this show (not really), but today is all about the new service Talos is launching - say hello to Talos Incident Response. Amy Henderson from the Talos Intel and Interdiction group joins us as we discuss the full circle of threat intelligence - from global visibility to hyper local context, and how IR allows those feed each other to the improvement of both. Listen to the announcement as we discuss what IR is, what it means in general, and what Talos brings to that equation. We hope you are half as excited as we are, because that is still pretty dang excited. Lastly, Craig isn’t with us today, but you get to decide his fate for being dishonest with you, dear listeners. We will deliver you justice.

Not Boring Security Talk

You all should know Cisco, but more importantly, you should know how good their security special unit is. This podcast takes a nice step away from the overly technical, and makes it feel as if you are really sitting down with this team and having a beer casually talking about major security news. They all have good views on the topics, speak like normal people, and can keep it entertaining as well. I really did not want to add another security podcast but I am so glad I was introduced to this one because they make my day. Keep up the good work.

Needs updated format

Let me start by saying this is an information security podcast that is fun to listen to. After being a loyal listener since the beginning the format has gotten old for me. The first 15 to 20 mins of the round table gets long and while it sounds like the hosts are enjoying each other and catching up I just want it to be over, but can’t because something good might come up. Second, Mitch you need to get these out quicker or find someone that can edit for you. The info is too old by the time it gets out and I have to adjust my mind back to when you guys recorded (if I can figure that out) the episode to understand the context of the events/tweets/news that week, and that really ruins the podcast for me. Nigel, love ya man but all the Liverpool updates are tough when the podcast is 2 weeks old. Which brings me to another point. It’s takes about half the episode to get to content that is meant for listeners and not the Talos team. At this point I am still listening but if other podcasts are going to fill up my time I probably won’t be listening as much because of the concerns above.

The “I choose you” episode is a disappointment

The first 12 minutes are complete garbage. The hosts are simply making small talk. Please keep the content relevant and concise!
