The one that got Huawei. We discuss the controversy around the Chinese company and the role it plays in the UK’s network, which has been rumbling on for years. Now it seems to be coming to a head – and headlines proclaiming the potential for the ‘9/11 of cybersecurity’ aren’t helping matters…

Next, we need to do talk about TikTok. Or do we? Is it as much of a sh*t storm as the media is making it out to be, or does all it boil down to good old fashioned paranoia with a sprinkling of personal vendetta from a certain politician thrown in? 

Kev reaches level 10 on the rant-o-meter over his latest findings in F5 – you have been warned – and another two CVEs with perfect 10 CVSS scores hit the headlines.

About Cyber Humanity

The podcast taking cybersecurity personally
There’s a lot of cool techy stuff going down in cybersecurity, and we love it. But you can’t deny that a lot the time we humans get forgotten. Our podcast takes a not-so-serious look at issues in security from a human point of view. Covering social engineering to hacker motivations and everything in between, we chat through security stories and themes and what they mean to us: the oft-neglected humans behind the screen. Apart from Kev, Kev is a cyborg.

These weekly podcasts come in two main flavors. We’re either ranting about themes close to the heart of us security types, or we’re discussing threats and vulnerabilities that have hit headlines – or slipped under the radar – in recent weeks.

Join Chris Pace (tech advocate and keeper of the coloring pencils), Kev Breen (pro blue teamer, also known as ‘Mr Nothing to CVE here…’), Max Vetter (former dark web detective and pretty cool guy), and Paul Bentham (ex-gov. type and Immersive Labs product guru) as they wend their way through the murky world of Cyber Humanity.
