Security awareness months kick into high gear and the Risk Roundtable crew gives their thoughts on the variety of acronym disasters (NPM, NITAM, NCISRM, NCAM, XYZPDQ…) and cut to the heart of each one – Preparedness and Awareness! The group then talks about some of the ongoing protest activities and look ahead to some upcoming events including the “Justice for J6” event. Continuing the preparedness theme, and switching to the Roulette Round, the Roundtable turned to one of everyone’s favorite security researchers – Troy Hunt and him living his best life while making everyone aware of their risks as well as a lively debate on passwords. Toss in some comments about severe weather preparedness and whatever Andy wanted to go off on and the group with wrapped up with some fun (even questionable…) questions. Still not sure why everyone shudders at green holidays…
