Today's podcast discussion is with someone who has one of the toughest jobs in the security world... Patrick helps organizations that generate and deliver the power that runs our gadgets and critical systems that maintain life as we know it. The power grid is not only surprisingly vulnerable due to it's age-old infrastructure, but also surprisingly resilient due to the complex nature of power distribution and generation... there's just a lot more to it than most people realize.
Patrick separates fact from fiction and goes into the pragmatic approach on national electric grid security - where we realize that it's really worse than we believed from a cyber security perspective, but better than we know because as you read this the electric grid is under constant attack, but it's still transmitting clean power.
I urge you to listen to this podcast, and then engage Patrick (@PatrickCMiller) or I in discussion...
President & CEO of EnergySec

This episode is a mini-episode recorded live from the social media lounge at HP Discover Las Vegas 2012. It was an incredible show, where I caught up with Marc and Matt - two guys who are really from opposite side of today's deploy vs. secure coin. Somehow we quickly dove into DevOps and picked up right where my conversation with the incomprable Gene Kim left off in episode 20. Ironically, we discussed how to deploy faster (sound familiar?) and still get security and quality into the scope of delivery... this isn't a product pitch but it's two HP guys talking about how products impact software quality, security and overall delivery speed.
