This episode is a great interview with Mark "Phork" Carey. We riff on the future of technology & infosec, how machine learning might impact security in the long term, what it was like to build the application-centric web with Sun, lessons learned from decades of hardware hacking and whole lot more! The short for this month is with @pophop, so check out what the self-proclaimed "elder geek" has to say as he spreads some wisdom.

State Of Security Episode 6

June 30, 2015

This time around, we get one of the most personal episodes yet - a behind the curtain look of what it is like to manage the incident response team in a highly publicized breach, under strict regulation, for 6+ months. The insights here and examinations of the personal and professional impacts are profound. We also close this episode with our new "shorts" segment - this time with an insight from @sempf. Thanks for listening, and as always, let us know what you think on Twitter - @microsolved or @lbhuston. Stay safe out there!

State Of Security Episode 5

May 27, 2015

This is one of my favorite episodes so far! I spend about 45 minutes with Josh Anderson, who riffs on IT and ICS/SCADA security threats, career advice, how he compares his life to characters on TV's "24" and a whole lot more. Very relaxed, generous in time and content, this interview with one of America's Premier ICS Security Gurus (I just gave him that title...) is fun and lively. 

Special shout out to Kent King for his mentorship in this episode, as well.

In this episode we sit down with Mark Tomallo, from Panopticon Labs, and RSA's Kevin Flanagan.
