In this episode...

Live (live-to-tape) from 44Con, London, England.

It's amazing, listening to this episode recorded at 44Con last fall, how little the landscape of enterprise security has changed. I took some time during the busy conference to sit down with Ian Amit and Dennis Groves to discuss Ian and my talks (which were perfectly aligned, and completely unplanned!) on the state of security in the enterprise. It's always interesting to get the perspective from 2 industry-well-known speakers and thinkers.

We discuss the topics of #SecBiz including the role of security in the enterprise, the challenges business security professionals face, metrics and why we have some of the crazy change management failures in security. We laugh, we almost start to cry - but ultimately come to the realization that we need change. Ian and Dennis and I are working on driving that change!
