A call to action for infosec pros…
May 23rd, 2013 --
We're kicking off our AusCERT 2013 coverage today with the conference's opening keynote by Michael Jones, Google's chief technology advocate. He's charged with advancing technology to organise the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Michael has worked as chief technologist of Google Maps, Earth, was the CTO of Keyhole Corporation, the company that developed the technology behind Google Earth and was also CEO of Intrinsic Graphics, and was director of advanced graphics at Silicon Graphics.

This week's feature interview is with Dave Jorm, a Brisbane-based security geek and environmental science aficionado who's done some really interesting OSINT analysis of agricultural efficiency in North Korea with publicly available satellite data. He's presenting his findings at AusCERT's annual conference on the Gold Coast next week; he joins the podcast to talk about his work and the online community of North Korea watchers. Ok, so it's not exactly about infosec, but it's really interesting stuff and I hope you all enjoy it!
Awesome feature track this week. Check it out here!

This week's edition of the show is pre-recorded because I'm off surfing in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa. There will be no show next week, but the week after that I'll be bringing you an episode from the ITWeb Security Summit in Johannesburg where I'm speaking. In this week's show we've got a great interview with Wade Baker, the managing principal of Verizon's RISK team, and the topic, of course, is this year's Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report.
Just like the Chewbacca defence, market figures do not make sense...

This week's show is brought to you by our longest term sponsor, Tenable Network Security, thanks guys. In this week's sponsor interview we chat with the CEO and co-founder of Tenable, industry stalwart Ron Gula. We're chatting to him about a funny idea -- that the release of indicators of compromise might become so regular that they'll have to be handled in regular info sec team workflow. So we'll have Patch Tuesday and "which IPs owned us" Wednesday.

In this week's feature interview we're chatting to industry legend and In-Q-Tel CSO Dan Geer about the idea of offence as defence. If someone's attacking you do you have the moral right to attack them back? Dan actually thinks you do. This week's show is brought to you by Adobe. Adobe's head of product security and privacy Brad Arkin pops along to have a bit of a chat about the busy few months they've been having at Adobe dealing with some interesting bugs.
Linkage. Copious linkage.

And we've got a really interesting sponsor interview with HackLabs head honcho Chris Gatford about how many, many organisations simply don't do any foot-printing... and it means they miss so much!

We had to cut lots this week!
