On this episode of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast, we discuss:

  • Cybersecurity burnout: How bad is it? What can be done to mitigate it? And what are the warning signs? All tech professionals have burnout issues, but InfoSec has it toughest because it’s very hard for them to get a sense of accomplishment for their work.
  • CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast is making an impact in the vendor community: We hear multiple stories from vendors how the advice from Mike and the guests is really changing the way they reach out to security professionals.
  • Are you willing to release a product with known security vulnerabilities? What if the customer really demands the new feature next week and they’re expecting it, but remediation may take much longer. Do you give the customer what they want, or are there other solutions?
  • What’s Worse?! We play a round of picking the worse of two evils. This one is all about training your staff.
  • We unleash another pitch on the security professionals: Their response will surprise you as will the outcome of this pitch.
  • Dumb CISO mistakes: This one actually may not be so dumb. It could actually be good advice when it comes to product testing.
  • Ten-second security tip: This one offers up a more holistic view of security that you may have not considered, but definitely should.
