From At The Edge Column

By Sean Martin, host of At The Edge

In today's episode, Jay Leek and Patrick Heim of ClearSky Ventures shine the light on a ton of stuff related to the state of the InfoSec market and how cybersecurity investments play a role in the ecosystem of protection, detection, and response. Listen in to get their individual and combined views on investment strategies, investment buzzwords, and the categorization of the 4 types of security companies and how the categories impact investment decisions. Jay and Patrick even share some advice for the organizations making attempts to consume some of these innovative products.

From The Cyber Society Column

By Marco Ciappelli
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.

Unusual Gathering | Episode XX | Guests Georgia Weidman And Larry Whiteside

Conversations At The Intersection Of IT Security And Society

Georgia Weidman | Larry Whiteside

Selena Templeton | Sean Martin | Marco Ciappelli

This episode:
Bringing representation to the underrepresented. Let’s talk about mentors.

By definition a mentor is a wise or trusted adviser or guide, a counselor or a teacher.

In todays Unusual Gathering, we discuss the many aspects of mentorship. Who can be one, how to find one, what it takes to be a modern mentor, and where we stand now with this practice — and, in particular, where we stand in the cybersecurity industry with respect to mentors.

Not only can everyone be a mentor, but everyone needs a mentor at some stages of their career. As long as you mean it and as long as you are passionate about it, you can be both a mentor and also an amazing role model destined to change someone’s life for the best.

From the Experts Corner​
Snake Oil Or Silver Bullet? Blockchains Are Neither

Countering claims that blockchain is “pure hype and snake oil," Simon Harman, Project Lead at Loki, discusses the current reality of the blockchain sector. Addressing the failure of some projects to deliver on their promises, as well as the cause of both criticism and praise for a technology which was on everybody's radar in 2017/18, he suggests that this new industry holds a great deal of promise based on the hard work of sensible, sustainable development.
