Collective Intelligence Podcast, RSA Conference Mega-Podcast
Question: What do you get when you connect a bunch of friends who have worked in, or written about, security for a long time over a few drinks and fried chicken? Answer: A 62-minute dissection of the RSA Conference, security buzzwords (looking at you blockchain), marketing missteps, and lots more that’s top-of-mind in the industry.
This semi-annual podcast was recorded this week in San Francisco during the RSA Conference and features Flashpoint Editorial Director Mike Mimoso and Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Leggio, Decipher journalists Dennis Fisher and Fahmida Rashid, and Tendermint head of security Jessy Irwin.
Up for discussion is a wide array of topics starting with blockchain and its applicability—if any—for information security, as well as privacy, the impending GDPR deadline, hardware bug disclosures, RSA Conference, and how to do security marketing correctly without introducing more harm or risk.
