Cybersecurity is Complicated, Here’s a Little Help

If you’re like me, continuously listening to webinars & podcasts to broaden your knowledge of the security industry, emerging trends, and new threats – you’re always looking for reliable, thought-provoking sources to learn and educate yourself.

I guess you could call me a “Security Geek”!

I have always found podcasts to be a phenomenal resource to learn about industry trends and products or services that are revolutionizing how teams operate. Not only do you get a chance to listen to subject matter experts and thought-leaders talk about their industry knowledge, but also learn about an application’s benefits and value it brings to solve everyday challenges.

The best part, they are free learning-sessions from industry experts on new trends and applications you and your team can utilize!

Below are the top 4 podcast channels I frequently visit each week to stay updated on the cybersecurity industry, trends and useful advice – including our new Respond Software podcast.

  1. The Risky Business podcast, hosted by award-winning journalist Patrick Gray, features news and in-depth commentary from security industry luminaries. Risky Biz is a phenomenal source to stay updated on the latest cybersecurity news on a weekly basis and trends.
  2. The Unsupervised Learning Podcast series, hosted by cybersecurity professional Daniel Miessler, discusses current cybersecurity news, emerging technologies, and provides opinions and advice on the latest trends in security.
  3. The Defensive Security podcast, hosted by Jerry Bell and Andrew Kalat provides a fun take on recent security news. One of the intriguing aspects of their podcast is they recommend feedback and advice for business on what they can apply to keep their network secure. Their perspective and input on best practices is very fascinating.
  4. The Respond Software podcast series covers a wide range of topics and issues – providing a fantastic way to learn about emerging threats and trends, challenges in security operations and opinions from industry experts. One of the primary focuses of the Respond Software Podcast series focuses on the role of humans and technology in the cybersecurity space. The series also features prominent industry leaders like Raffy Marty, VP of Corporate Strategy at Forcepoint. In a recent podcast, Raffy discusses cybersecurity challenges that exist today, what technologies can help improve existing processes and how cybersecurity has changed over the years.

By listening to these podcasts, I have learned a tremendous amount about the cybersecurity industry, trends, threats and new technology that revolutionizes how teams operate.
