Episode #34 - From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

Chris' turn to pick our topic...

There’s been a lot of hand wringing these last few weeks as ALL sorts of folks have woken up to, realized, or started to question their online presence. Their digital world has crumbled around them as they’ve realized not only don’t they own anything they commit to the keyboard, but whatever they do is, controlled by someone else.

Congratulations you are no longer the master (or mistress) of your own destiny, welcome to the digital world, please get in a queue like a good subservient population and tow the line or else.

No?

Then please leave. Leave the digital world behind, after all WE still have all that you were while you WERE here…

But, you can’t can you?

Someone somewhere HAS a digital record of you, it’s out of your control, welcome back peasant.

What IF you could be YOU on a digital medium? How DO you secure AND use it, yet ensure that nobody keeps nicking it? (Stealing for the colonials here)

THIS is the topic of this evenings Security Shit show with Rachel, Ryan, Evan and I

IS it possible?

Does it mandate lead lined boxes?

Will there be volcano’s?

IS Cerberus with us?

Will hiding it under the mattress work?

OR are we screwed and should simply give it all up as a bad job?

See you all later! Tonight LIVE at 10pm/2200 CST on the YouTubes.

Episode #33 Can I end cyber risk? or it is all just a pipe dream?

Recently a well known cybersecurity company made a very bold claim that they can end cyber risk!

This begs the question can you end cyber risk? what would it take to end all cyber risk? Is it even possible to end cyber risk? what if you put the phone in the chipper shredder, throw the laptop into a cruciable and melt it to bits, will that help? How deep does the digtal rabbit hole go? is there any escape from cyber risk?  

Can you go off grid or will the grid follow you? if you do go off grid does that impact how much you care about your digtial life? does being off grid affect your cyber risk exposure?

Or is it all just a pipe dream? are vendors selling pipe dreams and not soulutions? or are they just smoking some funny stuff that makes them think this behaviour is ok.



Tonight on the Security Shit Show we will be discussing this and much more, trying to figure out what we can do about cyber risk, because we know as long as computers exsist so will cyber risk.

Episode #32 - Where's the plunger?!

We're back after three weeks off!


Seems the world didn't right itself while we were away. SUNUVA...! (or BUGGER for Chris)

2020's gone. YAY

2021's here. YAY!

...maybe?

The calendar flipped, but the script didn't. 2020 was a f*cked up year for sure. Like seriously f*cked up! There was no shortage of breaches, sh*tty security stuff, panic, fear, loathing, division, etc., etc., etc.

The new year brings hope, right? Hope for a fresh start. When the calendar flipped to 2021, there was a collective sigh of relief. 

Yes, 2020 is behind us! There's hope! We can see light at the end of the tunnel! Hope is GOOD!

Then reality hits (again).

The sh*t from 2020 didn't go away. It's like 2020s sh*t is still in the toilet bowl and the f*cking toilet is clogged. Will 2021 be a year we find the plunger or a year we eat a sh*tload of bad Mexican food while we ignore the clog? We don't want 2021s sh*t to pile on top of 2020s sh*t, do we?!

We've stumbled out of the gate (in 2021). If we don't do something soon, 2021s sh*t is gonna be bad.  We can't let 2021 become 2020 with more sh*t. The smell is terrible and it's unhealth as... Well, sh*t!

Can we flip the script? Sooner or later, we're gonna have to! Hell, isn't flipping the script something that motivates us in this industry? 

This will be a good episode for sure! Catch this episode of the Shit Show Live @ 10pm/2200 CST on YouTube, or watch it later.  We're HAPPY to be back!
