Privacy and Security.

In this open series, you can contribute shows that are on the topic of Privacy and Security

Inoffensive in every region of the world

Hello, again. This is Trey. This is part 1 of a 6 part series related to information security podcasts.

Why am I recording this series?

"What podcasts you listen to" was on the list of recommended topics

I am passionate about information security

We desperately need people to fill infosec jobs in many different specialties

Infosec is a rapidly changing field, and it is critical to stay current

As a result I listen to TONS of infosec related podcasts

Because there are so many podcasts to list, I will break them down into 6 different episodes based on topics:

  • Part 1 – News & Current Events
  • Part 2 – General Information Security
  • Part 3 - Career & Personal Development
  • Part 4 – Social Engineering
  • Part 5 -
    • Hacks & Attacks
    • Technical Information & Learning
    • Infosec Community / Social / History
  • Part 6 – Infosec Leadership

Part 1

Infosec News / current events podcasts – Why?

Stay aware of what is happening for your own personal growth

If you already work in IT or Infosec, you can have early awareness about attacks to look for indicators of compromise, or learn new tools and techniques

You can get a head start answering questions from leadership, when they ask about something they heard on the news or from a peer.

    Part of the TWIT TV Network
    Steve Gibson, the man who coined the term spyware and created the first anti-spyware program, creator of Spinrite and ShieldsUP, discusses the hot topics in security today.
    Spinrite has helped me salvage many a hard drive over the last few decades. I'm a big fan of Steve Gibson
    Does a great job of simplifying technical topics.

    A weekly podcast mixing news and interviews

  • Risky Business podcast - Patrick Gray and Adam Boileau (Weekly)

    Sometimes the discussion may get a bit political.

I hope that this episode has introduced you to some new sources of information. Give some of them a try, and I would love to get your feedback.

Thank you for listening.

Really liked the show

It is great to hear about the podcasts you follow. I recognize many of them as shows I used to follow, though frankly since I retired I have been putting my energy into other matters. I'm turning 70 in a few months and have other priorities now.
