The Risk Roundtable EP 30: Jen’s a big deal, sweaty shirts, and persistent threats!

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.

It started off with sweaty shirts and Jen’s big announcement and ended with Dave wondering about green tea. But in-between, the latest episode of the Risk Roundtable saw Andy, Jen and Dave talk about familiar topics – namely persistent threats. Unfortunately, for all the times we have talked about them, these threats hang around and continue to strike at individuals and organizations. Whether cyber or physical, threat actors continue to go to the same proverbial wells again and again, because they work.

The gang talked about exposed vulnerabilities and the latest cyber threats and recounted the latest string of hostile events ranging from Buffalo, to Texas, to California, and many the others in-between. Relevant to the discussion was the release of the latest National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) bulletin that addressed the latest threats and extremist risks. After going through the roulette round, Andy led Jen and a partially paying attention Dave through some fun yes or no questions.
