Episode 58 – Malware Analysis with Kyle Andrus

6/23/2019
Often times in information security, we look upon penetration testing and red teaming with awe and view those professions as the "sexy" side of security. Truth be told, the defensive side has a lot of exciting opportunities as well! Kyle Andrus joins me this week to talk about malware analysis, which I think is definitely one of the sexier sides of defense.

Episode 55 – Talking Privacy with Matt Beland

5/12/2019
CORRECTION: Early in this episode I mentioned that Amazon would ask for your email password when signing up for a new account. I meant to say Facebook, not Amazon. The practice has since been discontinued, but I wanted to make it clear that this was a Facebook practice, not Amazon. Amazon has not, to the best of my knowledge, ever done something like this. Sorry for the mixup. For most security professionals, we view the CIA triad as our grail. No, not the US government agency that works...
