In today’s chat, Marco Ciappelli and Sean Martin speak with John Chambers, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, JC2 Ventures, Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cisco, Mike Fong, Founder and CEO at Privoro, and Vijay Balasubramaniyan, CEO at Pindrop. Together, the group discusses their role during RSA Conference, how corporations can balance security innovation with security operations, and the opportunity and impact new ventures can have on society.
In this podcast we spoke with two experts deeply entrenched in the world of industrial control systems and critical infrastructure. Galina Antova and Emily Miller join Sean Martin and Marco Ciappelli to give us a view of the state of security for this slice of society while connecting the dots to their RSA Conference panel, Why Industrial IoT Security Is Really about Saving Lives.

A conversation with Dr. Luigi Martino | Head of The Center for Cyber Security and International Relations Studies at the Department of Political Science Cesare Alfieri of the University of Florence
Is it still possible to keep addressing cybersecurity only from a technological approach? We both agreed that the answer is clearly NO. It is not only inconvenient and inefficient, but also dangerous.
In this podcast we get to know two fantastic women in the cybersecurity community: a friendly hacker and a lawyer, who also happen to be sisters whose individual careers have inspired one another. We hope that they will inspire many young people to pursue their passion and hopefully a career in InfoSec, as a hacker, as a lawyer, as a psychologist, as a researcher, or whatever their dream may be.

A conversation with Kristin Judge | CEO/President of the Cybercrime Support Network
It seems to me that we have a long way to go before the general population and small businesses become aware of the very likely risk of becoming victims of cybercrime. While there are many things that can be done to reduce the risk — the “100% safe” scenario is a myth — we certainly cannot expect (at this time) that someone or something is going to take those steps for us.

A conversation with Sarah Squire Senior Technical Architect at Ping Identity
Times have changed quite a bit since cybersecurity wasn’t even a word. Now it is most definitely a thing, a problem, a cost, and also a value.
The fact that cybersecurity sounds boring and the fact that it is mostly perceived as a cost doesn’t help your chance for success.
But is that true?
What’s the title of today’s story?
Data Privacy Day 2019 Reminds Businesses and Consumers About the Value of Personal Data and the Need to Protect It
In this new era of privacy, the National Cyber Security Alliance will underscore the value of personal information by informing businesses about the critical need to respect consumer privacy and safeguard data.
We discuss the consequences of a cyberattack on individuals and families as it goes way beyond the material financial damage, and we wonder if the option of enrolling in cyber insurance protection is going to help increase cyber awareness or make it worse and further numb us all?
What is this conversation about?
It is about the World Economic Forum and it is about cybersecurity, which is now officially recognized as one of the top 5 global threats. 140 participants representing about 90 organizations and 25 nations spent two days together discussing how the cybersecurity challenge could be addressed and resolved as a cross-border issue, with no nationality.
Selena Templeton and co-host Marco Ciappelli chat with Whitney Merrill, a privacy and data attorney who also founded the crypto village at DEFCON, about cyberbullying, anonymity and privacy rights. In this inspiring story, Whitney recounts how being cyberbullied in high school, and the frustration of being told by teachers and police that they couldn’t trace the user, led directly to her career in information security, privacy and the law
Computer science, philosophy, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and many more disciplines are needed to prepare our future with AI. Because we cannot hide behind a pointing finger and say machine did it; that would mean that we, humans, did it.
In my humble opinion, Artificial Intelligence is fundamentally an extension of humanity and an evolution of the state of being human.
Selena Templeton and co-host Marco CIappelli chat with Ariel Herbert-Voss, a Ph.D. student at Harvard University with a focus on adversarial machine learning, about artificial intelligence, machine learning and unconscious bias. It’s no secret that algorithms are, or can be, inherently biased but the issue is not technology – the issue is about human nature. And we can only build something that is fair if we are.
Nollaig Heffernan and Sean Martin weave, swerve and blast their way through a number of application security technologies looking at the history of the marketplace, the expansion of the technologies, how things stay the same even with the massive changes in continuous delivery and continuous integration.

In today’s conversation, Candy Alexander from ISSA International and Jon Oltsik from ESG share how important their 3rd annual global survey on the life and times of cybersecurity professionals is to the InfoSec community, who should get involved, and how the coming findings can help the community help each other to make for a better experience as we all fight the good InfoSec fight.
Are you tired of the same old stories from the InfoSec vendors? This panel of givers and receivers should make you chuckle as they tell their stories of success and failures in cybersecurity solution sales. Don’t drink the snake oil too fast!

A conversation with Jeff Wilbur
Director of the Online Trust Alliance Initiative at the Internet Society
This conversation happened during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and while it is an extra incentive for many, Jeff and I agreed that there’s no such thing as a bad month, day or hour to talk about cybersecurity awareness and education.
We spoke about the past, the present, and the future of our cyber-connected lives, how things have changed, especially with the advent of the Internet of Things and the massive adoption by industries and consumers, and what consumers can and should do to be safer online.
In the first of three episodes, Sean Martin is joined by Marco Ciappelli, and these co-founders have the distinct pleasure of chatting with Daniel Elliot on the show. Daniel is the director of small business education at the NCSA and gives an overview of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, as well as the value of sharing cybersecurity responsibility — from the consumer to the large enterprise and from the boardroom to the break room.

A conversation with Dr. Ayesha Khanna
Recorded in Singapore during RSA Conference APJ 2018
This is a conversation with Dr. Ayesha Khanna, right after her closing keynote at RSA Conference 2018 APJ during the The Hugh Thompson Show: Artificial Intelligence APJ Style. Even Sophia — Hanson Robotics’ latest and most advanced robot to date and a cultural icon — was part of that panel, but to be honest, at this stage I would rather talk about Artificial Intelligence with those of my kind. For the time being.
As you can tell we were not in a hurry to publish the large amount of content created during our Las Vegas coverage. Instead, we decided to pace ourselves and give you the time to appreciate all the conversations we had.
This one was recorded by me and Sean Martin after we went to see what was going on at BSides and ran into the conference’s Co-Founder Jack Daniel.
