"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...."
I cannot think of a better way to start this intro chronicle to today's Episode. While it will become clear why this is the case as you listen to it, you will probably come to envision a movie made from this story. I sure saw one in my head while I was following along as Alissa was telling us about her many adventures.
The truth might be that I have quite an over sensitive imagination—nothing new there—but I really couldn't resist the impulse of pausing her long enough so I could grab a bucket of popcorn. I know it wasn't just me because Sean was listening quietly for a long time. If you know us, as you should by now, you are likely aware that for he and I, sitting quietly in the background is not an easy thing to do.

It took me a while to get the conversation with Katie Nickels and Fred Wilmot sorted so we could talk about all things MITRE ATT&CK. Fortunately, we found some time together in person in Las Vegas during Hacker Summer Camp. As a bonus, I also got the chance to meet Ryan Kovar who happened to be presenting on ATT&CK with Katie that smae week. Ryan joined us for the conversation as well.
Have a listen as we explore what MITRE ATT&CK is, what it’s for, who it’s for, how to get started with it, how to be successful with it, and what scenarios could be leveraged to learn from others’ successes and challenges.
All right, ladies and gentlemen, it finally happened: Vandana Verma is my distinguished guest on this An InfoSec Life Podcast.
For those of you that haven't had the pleasure to meet her in person—Sean and I had this honor in Las Vegas this year—let me tell you, she is as nice as she sounds. In my opinion, there is nothing more valuable to add to someone's professionalism and skills than a big heart. It helps to make them a role model and an inspiration for any just entering—or that are about to enter—their career in the InfoSec community.
“Water drops hit the wet stone floor. The sound reverberates in the distance.”
“I see there is somebody lurking in the shadow here.”
“He couldn't sound creepier if he tries to sound creepier__”
“I could try.”
“He could probably be.“
“He probably could. He probably could__ anxious laugh.”
“Evil laugh echoes in the emptiness of the dark corridor__”
This was not scripted. It just happened. The podcast starts like this and there is nothing I can do about it. Actually, to be honest, I am glad it did.
Black Hat USA 2019 was a huge success — again. Toward the end of the conference, Sean and Marco connect with Black Hat General Manager, Steve Wylie, to have him give us an overview of what happened throughout the week of trainings, briefings, and summits.
