Dreamer - New Year Predications
Welcome  to Kibitz and Bitz!  Where we argue information security and draw lessons from the weekly  Torah portion. For the week of December 15, 2019, Genesis 37:1 to 37:36.  Jacob gave his favorite son, Joseph, an ornamented tunic, which results in his brothers to hate Joseph. When the opportunity presents itself, the brothers conspire to kill Joseph, only to throw him into a pit. Wolf and Dave argue on new year security predictions. New year predictions have become a mainstay with December content producers. Much of the content reproduces the predictions from prior years. Unlike Joseph who takes dream content and make predictions.

Jacob and Esau - Threat Intel & Defense in Depth
Welcome  to Kibitz and Bitz! Where we argue information security and draw lessons from the weekly  Torah portion. For the week of December 8, 2019, Genesis 32:4 - 33:20.  Jacob sent a messenger to his brother to tell him that he’s staying with their uncle Laban, but finds out in  excerpt at 32:7 that Esau is on his way with 400 men. Wolf and Dave argue on Threat Intelligence and Defense in Depth. Jacobs defenses were adequate to survive his brother's attack, but what can we learn from Jacob to protect against unknown threats in modern computing.

Badeken - Lifting the veil
Welcome  to Kibitz and Bitz! Where we argue information security and draw lessons from the weekly Torah portion. For the week of December 1, 2019, Genesis 28:10 to 30:13. We discuss Genesis 29:18 specifically where after 7 years of service Jacob expects to marry Rachel, but his uncle Laban switches out his daughters. Wolf and Dave argue on security as a process and how much process is required to have adequate security. While lifting the veil is adequate process for Jacob to verify the integrity of his bride, there isn't an equivalent simple process for verifying vendor security.

The water is ours - Attack Back?
Welcome  to Kibitz and Bitz! Where we argue information security and draw lessons from the weekly  Torah portion. For the week of November 24, 2019, Genesis 25:19 to 26:22.   We discuss Genesis 26:20 specifically where Isaac dug a well and the Philistines declared "The water is ours." Wolf and Dave argue on how to respond when our resources have been attacked. The argument morphs into whether or not it's okay to attack back or come up with an alternative response. Alternatively, would it have been better for Iaasc to get it right the first time, but what if he doesn't?

Burnt Out Husk? - Advanced Years and Blessed All the Things
Welcome  to Kibitz and Bitz! Where we argue information security and draw lessons from the weekly Torah portion. For the week of November 17, 2019, Genesis 23:1 - 24:9.  We discuss Genesis 24:1 specifically in regards to how Abraham is now "advanced in years, and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all the things".  Wolf and Dave argue if we have cyber-security historians and is there enough age diversity in InfoSec. The argument evolves into the importance of having a talent or cultural pipeline based upon Jewish observations.

Calf - Delegate or DIY
Welcome  to Kibitz and Bitz!  Where we argue information security and draw lessons from the weekly Torah portion. For the week of November 10, 2019, Genesis 18:1 - 18:33.  We discuss the LORD's visit to Abraham when he was 99 years old. To serve the LORD, Abraham instructs Sarah to make fine baked goods and a youth to prepare a calf. Why did Abraham ask a youth to prepare the calf rather than his most skilled butcher? We debate the risks of whether it's better to delegate tasks for mentorship or to do it yourself. Both Wolf and Dave are mentors so with this Torah parshah it is difficult for them both to disagree but they do. Their individual mentorship styles make for an educational podcast.

Abram and Lot - You go North, I’ll go South
Welcome to Kibitz and Bits!  Where we argue information security and draw  lessons from the weekly  Torah portion. For the week of November 4, 2019, Genesis 13:5 - 13:18. We  discuss Abraham (Abram), Sarah (Sarai) and Lot where they settle in Canaan then how Abraham and Lot experience conflict with each other and how they decide to resolve the conflict. Their conflict is not much unlike DevOps and Blue Teams where the need for InfoSec generalists and specialists are required for survival. Wolf and Dave disagree on which role is more valuable to an organization and agree to disagree. Much like the biblical characters who decide one will go North, and the other will go South.  Note that in the recording we decided in advance to use Abram’s and Sarai’s names given by God rather than their birth names.
