I was able to catch up with Keren Elazari at Black Hat.  We talked about her presentation at BSides (Hack the Future) and what it means to us as security professionals.  Keren highlights how bits are controlling atoms more and more every day and how the next 20 years are going to make the changes of the last 20 look like child's play.

I had a chance to catch up with my friend, Jason E. Street at Black Hat in order to talk to him about a few of the projects he has going on.  In addition to full time employment he's an author, he's working to revitalize Defcon Groups and he's helping to publicize the efforts by hackers at Def Con to donate blood every year.  Busy guy.

I got to catch up with Paul Kurtz, CEO of TruSTAR Technology and former advisor to the White House on cybersecurity.  Paul and I talk about his work under a President and a President Elect, information sharing and the OPM hack.  This was one of the more interesting interviews I did at Black Hat, at least for me.  Hope you enjoy it too.

I sat down for a few minutes to talk to Dr. Engin Kirda, Chief Architect at Lastline and professor at Northeastern University in Boston.  We discussed the next generation of security professionals and his BH talk about the sophistication (or lack thereof) in modern ransomeware.

I got a chance to talk to Mike Walls, Edgewave's Director of Cyber Operations and ex-Navy pilot on the floor of the RSA conference.  I chose Edgewave to talk to specifically because of their marketing material and the number of buzzwords they used to discribe themselves.  Mike does a fair job of defending and refining their meaning as well as highlighting some of the differences he sees between private sector and DoD incident responders.  Still, he uses 'cyber' a lot, one of the tells that he really did work in government.

I got a chance to sit down with Jason Straight, SVP and Chief Privacy Officer.  Jason works on the legal side of security, meaning as a lawyer, not law enforcement.  The conversation covers international legal concerns, privacy and communicating with your own legal counsel, just to mention a few of the topics.

The interview was recorded in a busy tea house and I've done my best to remove as much of the noise as possible.

We'd suspected this day would come for quite some time, but it's time to make it official: The Network Security Podcast will no longer be a regular, weekly podcast, Rich Mogull and Zach Lanier will not be a consistant part of the podcast. The podcast will continue in some form, but it'll be Martin doing any of the publishing.  Which isn't really all that big of a change anyway.

Basically, all three of us have become incredibly busy in the last year.  Zach has a wedding to plan, a new job and has moved again.  Rich has more business and work than any time in living memory and has had to cut out anything not related to work or family.  And Martin moved to Europe and is on the road close to 50% of the time, further complicating everything.

There will still be microcasts and occasional interviews published through the podcast site, but for the most part we're shutting down production.  It's a sad day as we've been doing this podcast in one form or another for nearly almost 9 years.  We'll miss talking to each other and our audience, but the needs of life have intervened and require our attention elsewhere.  You can catch all three of us at various conferences, either presenting or attending and know that we've always loved hearing feedback from you.

Keep an eye and ear open as there are already plans in process for what comes next.  You didn't think Martin could stop talking, did you?

It's been a while since we could last record a podcast, but at least we were able to get Rich and Martin together this week.  Zach was supposed to join us as well, but got called away to fight a fire at the last minute.  Such is life sometimes.  But we got this episode recorded, so let's celebrate the small victories.  We don't know when we'll have the time for another one as most of the hosts are galavanting around the world and having fun.

This afternoon I had a chance to talk to two of the main organizers of one of the biggest security events of the year, BSides London.  Paul Batson and Thomas Fisher have been working tirelessly (or maybe tiredly) for months to bring together all of the disparate elements required to make a conference come together.  And it's no mean feat when the people you're working with are all volunteers and the money comes from sponsors, both of whom believe in your cause.  This year will be my first chance to go to BSides London (this is the fourth) and I'm really looking forward to it.

It only took 4+ weeks, but Martin and Zach are back on the air. Rich is back to his "(Inter)National Man of Mystery" routine, so he missed out on the somewhat lively discussion about drones, "secure" browsers, PCI, and, of course, the NSA.
