Episode #10 (“We Want You…”) is in the books…

We’re late posting this update. Our bad.

Episode #10 was recorded live last week (7/16) and it was our best one yet! It was Chris’ topic, and here’s his write-up:

On tonight’s Security Shit Show, Ryan Cloutier, CISSP Evan Francen and I are going to tackle the wonderful world of job descriptions, recruiting and the disaster that appears to be getting people INTO the industry!

As a guide, the below should help frame the conversations!

Job descriptions (AND their meanings)

1.       To be part of the team (you’re the first!)

2.       To lead from the front (you’re the bullet shield)

3.       To be THE voice (and get blamed)

4.       To bridge DevSecOps (You’re buying coffee and donuts)

5.       Drug free workplace (no coffee, tea, alcohol, weed, glue, or gluten)

6.       To have the following (The tick-list from hell)

a.       Degree (you know because that ALWAYS helps…)

b.       CISSP (yea, it’s only an intern role, but we to keep up appearances)

c.       5 years of experience (ALL entry level people have that, right?!?)

d.       CEH (we googled this, it sounded cool)

e.       Knowledge of networking (WTF is the difference between 5, 5e, 6, etc.)

f.        Experience with WiFi (A, B, G, F, E, 2.4, 2.5, 5 and many other numbers)

g.       Fluent in acronym soup

h.       Fluent in geek, an undergraduate in business, psychology, and PPTX

You get the idea; we’re going to dismantle this shit tonight!

A great episode with a ton of great discussion. Afterwards, arguably our biggest fan, Rachel Arnold ran off and created a working group to tackle our industry’s recruitment problem. The group was VERY chatty almost immediately. Kudos to her!

Killer Robots? Oh Shit.

If you missed last week’s episode, the Security Shit Show crew tackled the difficult discussion about morals and ethics. There are two ways to treat you ears and/or eyes (not likely) to Episode #5, "Moral and Ethical Shit in a Shitty World" : YouTube (video) Podcast (audio) It was an really good episode. A little bit of shit-slinging, but mostly just great discussion and opinion. If you like our shit, you should subscribe to our shit. Subscribe on YouTube or whatever your favorite podcast thingy is. Rumor has it, the shit will only get better and better! Episode #5 - Killer Robots? Oh Shit. Alright, we’re ready for the next episode of the Security Shit Show! Shout out to a helpful (and maybe even loyal) viewer Robert Hodges for calling our attention to a neat article titled “ Should 'Killer Robots' Be Banned? ”. Do killer robots sound like a good idea to you? Think about it... Certainly, Chris, Evan, and Ryan will have a few things to say about the topic.

We're information security veterans (some call us "experts") with more than 70 years of combined experience who have a lot of shit to get off our chest. The information security industry isn't all hunky-dory; we're doing a lot of things wrong and people are suffering because of it. You can be the "fly on the wall" or you can interact with us. Ultimately, this is your call. Here's the lowdown for our show... Name The Security Shit Show You can take this name two ways; either we're calling security a shit show, or we're discussing security shit on the show. The answer is "yes".
