The Risk Roundtable EP 36: Putting a bow on the year with Critical Infrastructure, Accelerationists, and Cyber Hygiene

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.

In the latest episode of the Risk Roundtable, Dave, Jen, and Andy wrap up their third year together and talk through recent events and talk about ways to fight off those seeking to ruin the holiday spirit. Dave and Andy kicked things off talking about the incident at the North Carolina power substation and what it could mean given recent events (Walmart shooting, Colorado Springs) and how to look at it from a preparedness standpoint. Jen dropped down the chimney and spread holiday cheer with a double shot of cybersecurity tips talking about holiday scams (in only the way Jen can do), and passwords (don’t be like Dave). Then Dave then took the group back through some of the 2022 predictions to see if they were right, needed more time, or were off base before Andy put a bow on the podcast with a holiday themed question.

Andy’s cybersecurity shoutouts include:
