On this week’s episode of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship podcast we ask, “What good is a security alert if there’s no actionable item?” As always, the show is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), founder, Spark Media Solutions and Mike Johnson, CISO, Lyft. Our guest this week is Wendy Nather (@wendynather), director, advisory CISOs, Duo Security.   On this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Flex your incident response muscles.
  • Does your cybersecurity policy change around high-profile events?
  • What’s the definition of cybersecurity and why do so many people care?
  • How a security vendor helped me a long time ago, but Mike thought about them this week.
  • A couple of vendors submit their pitches for a critique. One is confusing and one is almost perfect.
  • And a couple of “Ask a CISO” questions.

Don’t bother trying to craft a potentially clever, funny and adorable email that you hope will tickle a security practitioner; it’s simply not going to work. When it comes to security pitches, practitioners just want the facts. While humor is appreciated, a cold email pitch is not the time to showcase your creative writing skills. As always, the show is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), founder, Spark Media Solutions  and Mike Johnson, CISO, Lyft. Our guest this week is Jeremiah Grossman (@jeremiahg), CEO, Bit Discovery.   On this week’s CISO/Security Vendor Relationship podcast, You’ll discover that InfoSec truism and:

  • 10-second security tip (do you have these security controls in place?).
  • The correct pronunciation of CISO (and whether anyone cares).
  • Consumers and activists issuing lawsuits in the name of GDPR and why that’s a good thing for the future of GDPR.
  • The increasing cost of breaches.
  • A new method to get a security practitioner’s time (Is the idea so crazy it will work? Or do we just need more crazy ideas?).
  • How a security vendor helped me this week.

I’m proud and excited to announce the launch of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast based on the series of articles and videos I produced that examine the relationship between security buyers and sellers. That series was heavily inspired by the writings, posts and insane engagement that Mike Johnson, CISO of Lyft, continues to drive on LinkedIn. And what’s even more awesome, Mike agreed to be my co-host! For our first episode, Mike and I invite Dwayne Melançon (@ThatDwayne), CTO, Innovyze.   In this episode we have:
