Episode 63 - We Welcome Our Alien Overlords

Well, it was too good to be true, we didn't have the whole crew

together, but Martin, Andy, and Joseph hit a couple of topics tonight


First was the continuing story of the virus that has hit the U.S.

drone fleet. We also posit the theory that the virus was put there by

aliens. Just saying.

Then, two articles that we kind of rolled together, discussing first

the role of compliance in a company's outside contractors:

Then we discussed the article from George Hulme and Eric Cowperthwaite

talking about budget and the role of the CSO.

And don't forget, BSidesDFW and BSidesATL are coming up quick! If

you're in the area of either, don't forget to sign up!

Episode 62 - Leaders & Experts

This week, for two weeks in a row, the whole gang is back. We hit two

articles that provoked a lot of thought amongst us, so without further


Security 101: Security in 140 Characters or Less

Are you an IT security leader - really?

Join us next week, as we continue to put right what once went wrong,

and hope each time that our next leap will be the leap home.

All four of the boys are together after an unplanned hiatus where Andy was on vacation, Steve went on Covert Ops to Romania, Joseph had to get a restraining order for those pesky girls, and Martin had to deal with the magic smoke leaving most of his podcasting gear.

The boys talk about whether SIEM is dead or not (hint: it doesn't want to get on the cart!) and about DigiNotar.

See y'all next episode!

This evening, it was just Martin and Joseph covering some of the big
news of the past week: Diginotar and Sony.

Signal to Noise

Diginotar, a Certificate Authority from Holland was breached over this
past week, and the fallout just seems to keep growing:

Back in the spotlight again is Sony, but for good (we hope) reasons
this time, as they've announced their new CISO:

Also, as we said on the podcast, for people with a high signal to
noise ratio on Twitter, try starting with these folks.
