CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast

The CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast is the show that launched the CISO Series back in June, 2018. We refer to it as couples therapy for security practitioners. In addition, much of our editorial revolves around the job of working in cybersecurity and being a InfoSec leader. At 35 minutes, this weekly program challenges the co-hosts, guests, and listeners to critique, share true stories, and reveal in hypothetical scenarios, “what would you do?”

The show is co-hosted by David Spark (@dspark), and Mike Johnson, former CISO of Lyft and now CISO for Fastly, this show has quickly become very popular receiving rave reviews from fellow InfoSec professionals.
