Want to get under a CISO’s skin? Ask them if they have a concern for security in their environment. It’s like asking a chef if they’re concerned about preparing food.

In this week’s episode of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast, we learn how the following:

  • Dumbest mistakes you can make as a CISO
  • What to do on day 1 when you’re a CISO
  • Why is everyone talking about this now? Questioning a CISO’s job interests.
  • Please, Enough. No, More on GDPR.
  • We critique a vendor pitch.
  • And “Ask a CISO.”


As always, the show is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), founder, Spark Media Solutions and Mike Johnson, CISO, Lyft. Our guest this week is Richard Greenberg (@ragreenberg), CISO, LA County Department of Health Services as well as chapter presidents of ISSA and OWASP in Los Angeles.

This episode is sponsored by Signal Sciences. We thank them for their support.
