Nerd Out Security Panel Discussion: EP 18. Dave Solo?! Talking Recent Events and Preparedness

In the most recent episode of Nerd Out!, and as accurately described by Ron Burgundy it could be a horrible news story… but Dave goes solo to talk about the recent events. These include the Norway Bow and Arrow attack, the murder of a British Member of Parliament, and two of the more recent insider threat attacks and how organizations can learn from these events and improve their security posture. Dave then goes a little pop culture to talk about his three favorite security movies and shows. He also uses these references to talk about how organizations can build and nurture their own intelligence analysts and the value they can bring to their organizations. Rough transitions and some help from Ron Burgundy and Syndrome aside, the panel will return for next month as they look ahead to what should be a busy holiday season.
