The Risk Roundtable EP 32: A true all-hazards discussion – cannabis, the Hard Reset, cybersecurity and monkeypox!

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.

Ben Taylor, Executive Director of Cannabis ISAO, channels his inner Wolverine and makes his third stop on the Gate 15 podcasts as he joins Andy to talk about all things Cannabis, including a new Cannabis ISAO cybersecurity report on a threat actor identified as “GanjaMask,” as well as the recent private-public collaborative effort among several ISACs, ISAOs, the Central Florida Information Exchange and Homeland Security Today to publish a joint security analysis around the new extremism document, the Hard Reset. Dave then joins Andy to talk about recent cybersecurity reporting on phishing, data breaches and ransomware, and the value that they provide to organizations as they go beyond the numbers. Ensuring the episode hits key all-hazards, Andy and Dave discuss monkeypox and the lessons that can be applied from COVID that can help individuals and organizations make responsible, risk-informed decisions, before playing three questions, talking Arnold, and maybe pointing to a future podcast discussion as Dave tees up the always challenging topic of misinformation. And shoutouts abound from REN-ISAC’s Kim Milford to outstanding security journalist, Catalin Cimpanu, to a number of excellent cybersecurity organizations (see links below!).

Some of the references from our podcast include:

Andy channels 1994 and quotes Biggie, ‘and if you don’t know, now you know…’ (from the first single by rap legend, The Notorious B.I.G. [aka, Biggie Smalls, born Christopher Wallace] from his 1994 debut album, Ready to Die)

As we seek to help apply a threat-informed, risk-based approach to analysis, preparedness and operations, we hope these podcasts are informative and maybe even a little entertaining.
