The Risk Roundtable EP 35: Talking cybersecurity resources, elections, pathway to violence, and our Top 5!

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’s never a good thing when Jen takes time and leaves Andy and Dave to their own devices. With Jen away, Andy took the opportunity to give shoutouts to some of the great cybersecurity resources available to help maintain awareness of the dynamic cyber threat environment. Then the boys dug into hostile events and some of the challenges that individuals and organizations can face, even when they do the right thing. At the same time, there are also inherent responsibilities that we all have in identifying behaviors or contributing to a threat actor’s pathway to violence by inaction (Michigan school shooting). Dave and Andy then talked about the upcoming election and some of great work that is going to make sure we have safe, secure and reliable elections. However, they also note that there are some potential risks that could occur in the aftermath. Finally, Dave and Andy have some fun talking about their top 5 (or 50) movies that they just can’t turn off when they happen to see them on. All this, as the Risk Roundtable welcomes listeners to Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month!

Andy’s cybersecurity shoutouts include:

Some of the references from our podcast include:
