A shame-free space to engage in open and honest discussions about what's going on in Security. Interviews of about 30 minutes in length explore the dilemmas and opportunities faced by real entrepreneurs, operators, engineers, and leaders. Join us and catch a glimpse into the proven technologies and techniques that solve real security problems today.
Wesley Belleman of California Air National Guard and Palo Alto Networks: Security Operations Center from Military and Private Industry Perspectives
An interview with Wesley Belleman, Cyber Warfare Operator at the California Air National Guard and System Engineer at Palo Alto Networks, and his journey through Security Operations in the United Space Space Force.
In this episode, we dive into what a SOC is, how new technology changes our ability to respond to threats, and what the open problems are still open. We explore the cultural differences between civilian and military security operations and discuss various open-source projects such as Security Onion or MITRE Att&ck that can be used to build your own SOC.
So what will the future of SOC's look like? Wes echo's Anton Chuvakin predictions that SOC's will be entirely automated, likely within our lifetimes, but not soon.
Daniel Feldman, Cloud Security Architect at HPE, Service Authentication with SPIFFE and SPIRE
An interview with Daniel Feldman, Cloud Security Architect at HPE (formerly Scytale.io), as we discuss his journey through service authentication with the open standard SPIFFE and the implementation SPIRE.
In this episode, Daniel tells the story of how he came across this problem of authentication at Veritas Technologies, why he joined a small startup Scytale.io to continue focusing on his security journey, and touch on what it's like at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. We end on a forward-looking note on what the future of cloud security might look like, with many challenging and open cloud security problems out there.
Daniel is happy to meet others with similar interests and experiences, so in that spirit, he is open to connecting and sharing stories and ideas. He can be reached on LinkedIn or Twitter as d_feldman.
Andrew Gontarczyk, CISO of Pure Storage: Building a Security Team
An interview with Andrew Gontarczyk, Chief Information Security Officer at Pure Storage, on the challenges of building a security team.
When is the right time for a company to build a security team? What types of Security Teams are there (Product Security, Infrastructure Security, DevSecOps, Red Team, Blue Team, Purple Teams), and what do they do? As a security leader, how do you influence the rest of a company towards a more secure posture? What are your favorite interview questions, and why? What role does diversity play in your team building? What's your leadership style? Even with a security team in place, what still keeps you up at night?
Anand Ganesh, Founding Software Architect at Hammerspace: Data-as-a-Service solves traditional security problems
Join me for an interview with Anand Ganesh, Founding Software Architect at Hammerspace, to discuss how storageless data solves traditional B2B storage security problems.
What is storageless data? How does Hammerspace encrypt data at rest? How do disaster recovery, backup, and snapshot data protection mechanisms work in Hammerspace? Why does data-as-a-service eliminate the need for fail-overs (passive-to-active transitions)? How do permissions work? How does intelligent data classification work in Hammerspace? How does Hammerspace help a customer recover from a ransomware attack? Do we have to trust our storage vendors such as AWS, Google, Azure, or even on-prem data centers? How do you securely delete data in a globally distributed system, like Hammerspace?
