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.

On the latest episode of the Risk Roundtable, Andy leads Dave and Jen through a discussion of the various awareness campaigns and how these efforts do a great job of providing resources and materials for all organizations, big and small. Focusing first on Cybersecurity Awareness Month that is ongoing in the month of October, Jen talked through the messaging, the themes (See Yourself in Cyber) and the importance of each of us doing our part. Later in the podcast, Dave shared his thoughts on National Insider Threat Awareness Month that concluded in September and the theme of Critical Thinking for Digital Space and how, again, everyone can do their part. The team also talked about security preparedness for the upcoming holidays. Andy capitalized on the discussion to talk about security awareness and mindfulness to appreciate, regardless of who you are and what your beliefs are. To cap off the episode, Andy took the roundtable through his three questions to include the always spicy debates on pumpkin pie and pumpkin flavored drinks.
