Jeff explains a little bit about who Norse is, and why they
were potentially targeted with a DDoS
We discuss what a DDoS is, how it becomes effective, and what
methods/tools attackers use (in this case SNMP v2 reflection)
We talk about threat intelligence (reputational intelligence)
and how companies and intelligence platforms can leverage this data
to decrease risks actively

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.
