This week, the interview is extra special because we have a guest I've personally been following for a long while, and I finally got a chance to virtually sit down and talk through his considerable areas of expertise.
I'm pleasured to say we had a chance to sit down virtually with Professor Tom Nichols and talk international affairs, foreign policy and all the important things getting lost in the off-color political arguments lately. These are important issues to cyber security professionals that impact our daily lives - but rarely get discussed by someone with actual, credentialed expertise.
Enjoy this one, friends, I know we did recording it. I want to thank Tom for being an awesome guest and lending his time to our show.

This week, Paul Hershberger joins us to talk about taking a fresh look at endpoint security for the new year. Paul has some insights into balancing risk/usability and how some of the things you've heard about endpoint may simply be ... wrong.
Join James and I as we let Paul endow us with his wisdom and experience... take some notes, this one's going to be good.

Welcome to the first Down the Security Rabbithole Podcast episode of 2017!
We would like to kick off this year, and the run to episode 250 with an episode that dissects the facts from the fiction on the topic of "Advanced Threats". With all the talk in the news about the Russians "hacking the US election" (yes, that's absolutely silly to call it that) and talk of retaliation, it's important to have a frank discussion on the merits of the concept of advanced threats.
Sit back, grab a coffee and listen. I know you'll want to listen to this one more than once!
If you have a moment, and you actually read the show notes, we would love it if you could give us a rating on iTunes or actually leave a comment on the podcast page. Get engaged on Twitter, using the hashtag #DtSR!
