    The Ransomware that (tried) to Eat the Airport / Facial Recognition: This is Our Life Now

    The Ransomware that (tried) to Eat the Airport / Facial Recognition: This is Our Life Now

    Lawyer, Cyber Security and Privacy maven Liz Wharton regales us with tales of her hand-to-hand combat experience with the Atlanta Ransomware of 2018, and then unfolds the current state of facial recognition in all its manifold splendor. (And we didn’t even get to cover the security of drones, yet another of her areas of expertise.) Also: the latest update on a voting app failure (no, not that one), and what a new ransomware variant demands — full disclosure . . . it’s full disclosure. As Liz would say, “Shut the front door!” — it’s a wild ride on this episode of Mistaken Identity.

    Go Blue? The Customer Experience

    Go Blue? The Customer Experience

    Loma Miller joins us to talk about the “customer experience” (16:31)— from pizza to haircuts to University of Michigan Football (yes, we covered a lot of ground.) Hannah Giles and Natalie Reina cover the headlines (2:38), which include a return to prominence by Ashley Madison, how Twitter can allow others to see your phone number without your consent, and the impact of the Coronavirus on an inbox near you. Finally, Loma runs the gauntlet of a new segment: “10 Questions.” It’s a cornucopia of coverage on this episode of Mistaken Identity. [Our producers have asked us to note, without editorial commentary, that Michigan went 9-4 this past year.]

    A Time for Everything

    A Time for Everything

    Amidst the current heatwave, David Lee and Mike Kiser review the late summer identity landscape. They (well, Mike) propose a strategy for paying for the recent series of compliance-related fines by eliminating the entire public relations department, contemplate four days in a Dominican jail with John McAfee, and explore what the future holds sans Botox via the recent FaceApp debacle. [Note: no privacy terms were harmed in the recording of this podcast.] Although we’ve used this label before, this is a “very special” episode, as is it's David’s final time hosting Mistaken Identity; the cast and crew wish him well in his new adventure. Have no fear, though, faithful listener — Mistaken Identity will continue to inform and delight with all things identity, like a cold spring-fed pool in the heat of a late Austin summer. (And yes, we’re taking the rest of the day off to go jump in Barton Springs.)

    Navigate 2019 and Predictive Identity

    Navigate 2019 and Predictive Identity

    David Lee and Mike Kiser take you “live” to Navigate 2019 in beautiful Austin, TX in this very special episode of Mistaken Identity. Dr. Jen Golbeck explores the ethical issues that we face as we seek to employ algorithms and identity, VP of Product Management Rick Weinberg discusses the future of predictive identity, and SVP of Software Mike Siegel lays out a strategy for being an identity advocate in your organization. The episode wraps up with a description of what the Golden State Warriors can do to avoid an NBA Finals loss to the Toronto Raptors. (Spoiler alert: basically not much — congrats, Canada!) As a final note — your ears do not deceive you — we’re in the process of upgrading our podcasting equipment: so sit back and enjoy an enhanced version of the dulcet, silky tones of David’s sonorous voice (and endure Mike’s helium-inspired staccato as well).

Mike and David are the perfect mix of funny, wild, zany, and super intelligent IAM practitioners! So much great content delivered in a “bot overlord” friendly way.
