This episode with Jeff was awesome, recorded at the OWASP LASCON security conference, I got a chance to sit down with Jeff in person and talk shop. I always learn something, but in this podcast Jeff dispensed his usual wisdom in buckets, I could barely write this stuff down fast enough. We covered the raising of the "information security table stakes", and what the last 15 years have meant to the information security profession in terms of evolution. We went into a discussion on how information security can avoid being a cost center and feeling the traditional expansion and contraction with workload and economic times, and I learned what the phrase "it was a business decision" really means. In case you need one more compelling reason, Jeff brought up yet another gem when he discussed how the business pushes the boulder off the cliff, then expects information security to change its trajectory mid-fall ... you're not going to want to miss this. I had a wonderful time catching up with Mr. Reich, and you'll enjoy this podcast, that's a promise.
