Take a step outside the echo chamber - gain some perspective and context.
Welcome to Cybersecurity: An immature industry where we mandate impossible-to-remember complex passwords that change every 30 days - and call that security. It's an industry where everyone is an expert, but no one's actually solved anything... weird right?
This show is focused on the many aspects of cybersecurity - from professional to leadership, technical to abstract. We look to entertain you while filling your brain with expertise and knowledge from all corners of our industry and beyond. You can expect security experts, policy professionals, and people from outside our own "security bubble" because frankly, our echo chamber needs some perspective.
