Intro:
Welcome back! This is episode 11 of The Insider Threat podcast, for the week of July 24th, 2017.
Another busy week in the books. I was responsible for selling architecture upgrades to executives in my own organization, and that took up quite a bit of my time between building slides, getting quotes, making diagrams, and all that. I’m sure you understand the work that goes into any big upgrade to the architecture.
I want to personally thank you all again for the great support you’ve given both to me and to the show. We keep hitting big milestones week after week and today we are hitting another one with our very first interview!
Finally you get to hear someone else’s voice for a change!
Again, thank you and please keep up the great suggestions and discussion on the subreddit. I’d like to see a little more of you in the IRC channel as well so we can discuss insider threat or anything else that might be on your mind in real-time.

Infosec Question of the Week:
Last week’s question was “In July of 1990 a video game designed by Hironobu Sakaguchi was released by Nintendo. It went on to become one of the most well-known game franchises in history. What was the name of this game?”
The answer was “Final Fantasy”.
Congratulations to Melissa from Virginia Beach, Greg from New Mexico, Al from Rhode Island, Gene from Houston, and Ganesh from India for getting the correct answer.
Question for this week: “In 1968, Intel was started in Santa Clara, California to build microprocessors. While it is one of the leading computer processor manufacturers today, what was the first processor built for?”
Send your response to InfosecAnswer@gmail.com. Be sure to include your first name, location, and the hashtag “Busicom “.
This week we had a fantastic interview with Greg Maudsley from Menlo Security. They provide an isolation solution that helps protect organizations from malicious links and websites. This isn’t just another VDI solution at all and I think you will be very interested in the way they are solving the problem.
Thought of the Week:
Our thought of the week comes from Robin Sharma, a Canadian writer and leadership speaker. He said, “Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence, and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire teammates and customers.”

Intro:
Welcome back! This is episode 10 of The Insider Threat podcast, for the week of July 17th, 2017.
We’ve had some pretty hot weather this week in my neck of the woods, and it looks like it has been the same for many of you.
We’ve also had some pretty high-profile data leaks recently, which we will cover in more detail later.
I’ve been working very hard to get some interviews for you guys, but I’m learning that coordination for those interviews isn’t as quick as I originally thought. In any case, I’ll cross my fingers and hope that I can get something setup very soon.
So we made it to double digits in our episode count, and I’m still really excited to be doing this. The feedback and discussions have been great.
If you aren’t already on the subreddit, you really should be. I’ve also set up an IRC channel that can be found on the subreddit so we can chat throughout the work week. A few of you have been on there, and the topics have been really fun. Just watch out for those pesky ducks.
