The Cybersecurity Evangelist: EP6 - The ISAC Series, Part 2
This month, The Cybersecurity Evangelist talks with WaterISAC's Director of Preparedness and Response, Chuck Egli. The conversation ran a little longer than I like to aim for, but it's understandable given that Chuck and I work closely together in support of WaterISAC. Plus, with WaterISAC being one of the oldest ISACs, I'm quite certain they've earned the extra spotlight! After a much longer than normal opening comment (I sense a trend here) running down a list of many of the ISACs - (most of) which you can find on The National Council of ISAC's webpage at https://www.nationalisacs.org/member-isacs - Chuck and I talk about all the ways WaterISAC supports the security and resilience of the water and wastewater sector with an all-hazards approach (not just cyber).  Chuck's parting thoughts: Look into your ISAC community or ISAO…there is one for you!! While many have membership models, so many of them offer information and assistance for the benefit of all toward the greater global good. For more information about WaterISAC, check out its webpage at https://www.waterisac.org/

The Risk Roundtable: EP 15. Nashville, Solar Winds and more!
The Risk Roundtable gang kicks off 2021 with two events that ended 2020 - the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville and the Solar Winds cyber event. Andy, Jen and Dave go through the incidents and look at the responses in each instance as well as what may come of it moving forward in 2021 though maybe no lizard people (Shoutout to "V"!). Then in the Roundtable Roulette, Dave brings up how to deal with dis/misinformation while Jen reminds everyone that new year doesn't mean that we can forget about our stable of cyber threats, most notably Ransomware which continued to evolve throughout the year. Finally, with it being a new year, the gang looked at personal and professional goals such as Dave's desire to read more, Jen completing her "she-shed" and Andy's desire to be more like Dave. Andy's reference to Russian Hacking: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/02/us/politics/russian-hacking-government.html

Nerd Out! Security Panel Discussion: EP 8. Looking back to look forward and holiday goodies!
In this year end Nerd Out Security Panel Discussion podcast, the gang takes a look at the events of 2020 and the impacts they had on individuals and organizations and attempted to pull out lessons to be learned as we get ready to kick off 2021. But before digging into the topics, Bridget shared some personal news related to the impacts of COVID. The group then built upon Bridget's moving account and discussed that while COVID obviously dominated the news, there were other security issues that caused disruptions and may have gone overlooked - or maybe not. The discussion then took a detour and went into some lighter, jovial discussions around food choices around the perfect holiday meal, the team passes out some security resolutions and reminders to focus on in the hope of starting 2021 on a better foot. Thanks to all the listeners and followers - 2020 gave us the opportunity to kick off this podcast channel and we look to keep security at the forefront of these discussions in 2021 and beyond!

The Risk Roundtable: EP 14. What security incident won the year?
Wrapping up a wild 2020, the Risk Roundtable crew looks at the security event or incident that took home the prize of most impactful. And no, COVID was not allowed! Was it "truth decay", domestic terrorism, ransomware, or any number of other incidents? The only thing that could be determined was that Dave was not getting any points for his submission.  Then the gang played a little Roundtable Roulette and shared some of the areas that they would be looking at moving forward while also recognizing the courage of their teammate Bridget Johnson, who recently wrote about the passing of her mother from COVID (https://www.hstoday.us/subject-matter-areas/emergency-preparedness/my-mom-died-of-covid-19-and-disinformation-was-the-virus-accomplice/).

For this November episode of TCE I’ve decided to take on National Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, Critical Infrastructure Month, Infrastructure Security Month, whew!

That said, this edition/theme is likely to be in three or four parts so we can evangelize as many ISAC’s (and ISAO’s) as we can! During this episode we get the ISAC party started with discussions from DNG-ISAC and MM-ISAC!

The Cybersecurity Evangelist: EP4 – “Am I doing enough?” Part 2
Shay Trembley, Information Security Manager of South Blount Utility District, and I finish up the remaining 4 "P's of Basic Cybersecurity" - a timely topic in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). We address passwords, privacy, patching, and protection, and include several of our personal favorite resources for cybersecurity awareness for everyone. Shay's final tip: she encourages everyone to speak up and share information. The more everyone shares information about the cyber threats and risks, or even suspected threats and risks, the better we will all be informed and #BeCyberSmart. In recognition of NCSAM, we individually listed a ton of resources to help businesses and individuals to #BeCyberSmart: https://staysafeonline.org/, including National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and other NCSA resources https://www.sba.gov/ https://www.cisa.gov/ https://www.cisa.gov/information-sharing-and-awareness(for more on Information Sharing and Analysis Centers) https://krebsonsecurity.com/ https://paper.li/gate15#/ https://www.sans.org/security-awareness-training/ouch-newsletter https://cybercrimesupport.org/ https://fraudsupport.org/ https://cyberreadinessinstitute.org/ https://www.idtheftcenter.org/ https://haveibeenpwned.com/ https://www.ic3.gov/ https://stopthinkconnect.org/

Nerd Out! Security Panel Discussion: EP 4.
Join Dave, Bridget Johnson, Travis Moran, and Jon Crosson as they talk about the latest security matters. Following up on the last episode, the panel discussed the cancellations of NCAA conference fall sports seasons including the increasingly popular College Football schedule. That was a smooth transition into the innovative ways networks have covered sports and if there was any type of innovation to the security sector. Could organizations replicate security "fans" or "crowd noise" - is that even a thing? And then we looked at the challenges within the healthcare sector and talked about how mental health and a future vaccine could impact security or fuel conspiracy theories. Jon Crosson works at the Health-Information Sharing and Analysis Center (H-ISAC). Their website (h-isac.org) includes a paper on information sharing best practices.

The Cybersecurity Evangelist - Demystifying Cybersecurity Myths - Part 2
This month we are airing part two of the inaugural episode of The Cybersecurity Evangelist where Travis Farral and I finish demystifying cybersecurity myth #2 and #1. Listen to find out where the term “hacking” came from, and more about different types of “hackers”…including the good ones. Travis and I also give a quick nod to our inner geek. We wrap up the discussion with how we are ALL targets of opportunity - even if we don’t have an online presence - and why it is important to overcome the “it won’t happen to me mindset.” Finally, Travis leaves us with his final thought: spend a few minutes trying to educate yourself on ways you can protect your family.

The Cybersecurity Evangelist: EP 1 - Demystifying Cybersecurity Myths
Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Cybersecurity Evangelist - a cybersecurity podcast for everyone. On the last Gate 15 Risk Roundtable (Ep 9), I eluded to following up on the topic of ransomware for this first episode. But after some deliberation, I thought a better place to start a new podcast on cybersecurity and how it is relevant to everyone, was to myth bust some commonly held beliefs. This episode is part 1 of 2, where I phish for answers by demystifying some myths with help from Travis Farral, including how cybersecurity is more than just a technology/computer problem, how increasing your cyber hygiene and security posture does not have to cost a lot of money, and how easy it is to buy a kit or an application if you are looking to launch your miscreant career! Some great resources mentioned in today's episode to help you understand more about the cyber threats that we all face everyday and to help you increase your cyber hygiene include: Verizon's Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR) Center for Internet Security (CIS) Critical Security Controls

Andy also shares some thoughts on the importance of preparedness and imagination when working towards personal, organizational and national resilience.
