NSP Microcast – G Data Summit – Natalya Kaspersky

Published by under Government,Podcast

It’s taken me a lot longer than it should have, but I finally got my interview with Natalya Kaspersky, CEO of InfoWatch and former CEO of Kaspersky Labs from the G Data Summit edited and posted.  We talked about the nature of current threats against enterprises (hint:  think APT and nationstate) as well as current changes to the global nature of the Internet.  Natalya has been in the security industry for some time and has a different viewpoint than a Western/US person such as myself.

NSPMicrocast – G Data Summit – Dr. Thorsten Holz

Published by under Podcast

A couple of weeks ago at the G Data Summit in Bochum, Germany, I got a chance to talk to Dr. Thorsten Holz, CEO and Director of the Horst Gortz Institute of IT Security at Ruhr University.  Dr. Holz and I talk about the nature of training the next generation of security professionals and how things have changed in education over the last decade.

It’s interesting to hear that even with the huge increase in students that Dr. Holz is seeing, it’s still not enough to meet with the needs of business in Germany.  I can’t imagine that universities and colleges in other areas are seeing any less of a demand than he is.

NSP Microcast – GData Summit – Walter Schuman

Published by under Podcast

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the G Data Summit in Bochum, Germany to take part in a celebration of G Data’s 30th anniversary.  Being the oldest anti-virus company in the world is a little something for them to crow about.

During the event, I got a chance to interview Walter Schuman, G Data’s CSO.  Unluckily, CSO doesn’t mean Chief Security Officer, it means Chief Sales Officer.  Walter and I had a good conversation about what security means to his customers, why protecting customer’s privacy is important to a business like G Data’s and explored a little of the political landscape of the world and what it means to someone selling security products.

LHS Microcast, Interview with Jen Ellis

Published by under Podcast

I wish it hadn’t taken me so long to find the time to edit this podcast, because this interview with Jen Ellis (@infosecjen on Twitter) is pretty good, no thanks to me.  Jen Ellis had given a talk earlier in the week and Chris John Riley and I finally managed to track her down to the press room at Defcon.  We talk about what the legal system in the US means to researchers and hackers, how the system is flawed and what steps we should be taking to influence future legal measures. Jen also gives Chris and I a little background into the Wassenaar Arrangement and what it could mean to researchers internationally.
