Have you ever lost an irretrievable password? Max knows that pain – as does a certain programmer from San Francisco who is one lost password away from $250million in Bitcoin. Ouch…

Next up, the Parler palaver. Trump has been ‘de-platformed’ and Parler is seeing huge back-lash for its role in recent political happenings.

And just when you thought you’d had enough of it, we come back round to SolarWinds. Kev delves into the third malware strain directly involved in the SUNBURST attack: SUNSPOT.

Cyber Humanity, the podcast taking cyber personally

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.
