The Risk Roundtable: EP 23. Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Disgruntled Employees, and Scott Bakula

Please enjoy this month’s episode of The Gate 15 podcast on AnchorSpotifyAppleGoogle, as well as other locations accessible via the Anchor link or almost anywhere you listen to your favorite podcasts.

The latest episode of the Risk Roundtable gets the group going in all sorts of directions ranging from an opening related to COVID fatigue, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and disgruntled employees. After deliberating whether they need a new roulette round music selection (Dave volunteered to sing it), the group sang the praises of new CISA chief Jen Easterly and the way she has been out front on all of the latest security issues. The team revisits the importance of patching (catch out Jen’s latest The Cybersecurity Evangelist podcast for more details). The group wrapped up with Andy’s three questions to address Super Bowl projections, Halloween, and what show we would want to reboot – hello Quantum Leap!
