Episode 40: Slack, Track and…Hack?

EA have been hacked to the tune of 780GB of their source code which has now found itself for sale on various dark web forums. While they confirmed that they’d suffered a data breach, they’d offered no insight into how it happened. Until now…

Moving from EA to AI, research shows that AI can now convincingly mimic cybersecurity and medical experts, which, naturally, sparks some lively debate. 

We also get into a discussion about disclosure, following Kev’s discovery of a number of vulnerabilities in NetGear’s routers. NDAs are flying everywhere and if you stay very still and quiet, you can even hear the sound of someone in legal crying.

And, of course, we have a cracking ‘Hackers Could’ section this week!

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.

We help businesses to increase and evidence human capability in every part of cybersecurity.
