Just like so many security products are infused with artificial intelligence, we’ve also got plenty of meaningless modifiers to describe this podcast.

On this episode we’ve got:

  • First 90 Days of a CISO. How do you assess talent already there, and how do you prioritize the new hires you need?
  • Please, Enough! No, More! We delve into the overexposure of AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning. Are they the same thing? And what do CISOs actually want to hear more about on both of these topics?
  • “What’s Worse?!” This is a brand new game where I ask the CISOs to determine which of two really bad security practices is worse.
  • What Do You Think of This Pitch? We’ve got another vendor pitch that the CISOs critique.
  • Ask a CISO. How are CISOs involved in purchase decisions that are not security related (e.g., cloud, networking, infrastructure).
