Sunday, January 6th, 2019

We hope you are all starting the New Year with the right amount of energy, confidence, and motivation.

We are ready for an exciting year and, in this first week, we have already had conversations with some organizations that have been doing an excellent job for the infosec industry and our community.

We are looking forward to joining forces with them to bring you even more from the intersection of IT security and society, to extend our influence, and to contribute to the causes we care about and cover on our columns:

At The Edge | DiverseIT | An Infosec Life | The Cyber Society | The Academy

Stay with us, is going to be an exhilarating ride.

This is not a wish — it is a promise.

Podcast From The Cyber Society

By Marco Ciappelli, host of The Cyber Society
A conversation with Ariel Herbert-Voss and Sean Martin

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.

Podcast from The Academy

ITSPmagazine’s Sean Martin and Selena Templeton chat with Elizabeth Lopez, a graduate of NPower’s Symantec Cyber Career Connection (SC3) program and a Security Operations Associate at KPMG, about her story that starts with a knack for computers and a job at the local library — which led her to NPower, a nonprofit that trains military veterans and young adults from underserved communities.
