Security Podcasts

Posted by on March 2, 2006

One of the most difficult parts of my professional life is staying current with all the various aspects of the Security world. It seems that in the past 5 years or so the industry has gone alittle nuts. When things really got rolling you had a few “Security Consultants” and they were supposed to know everything there was to know…or something. Now there are specialists in Forensics, Incident Handling, Malware Analysis, Intrusion Detection\Analysis, and Penetration Testing among others. Thankfully the difference between PRIVACY and SECURITY has also taken hold everywhere so we have HIPPA, FERPA, and Identity Theft specialists with their own shingles as well. Still, with all these specialties, all of us should have at least a finger in everyone else’s “specialty” pie. It’s been a wild ride and can be impossible to keep track of at times.

So the question becomes, what part of the day can you devote to keeping up with the Security Joneses? How about early in the morning? Yeah, like I can stay awake while reading at 4-friggin-AM. Well, there is lunch right? Sure…let’s see…the last time I actually took a full hour for lunch was….well…there was the time my senior year in College between finals. Surely you could just stay an hour late at the office. It is job related right? Sure it is. I’m sure your wife/husband/significant other is going to be happy to lose another hour of your time…and that is assuming some bonehead doesn’t wander into your office.

Let’s face it, time is tight and what “free” time we come up with has a long list of tasks predestined for it. Except for the time we spend in the car driving to and from the Salt Mine Inc. How many of us have iPods? Most everyone but Bryce. What if you could listen to some other security geeks discuss the news of the day? Paul Asadoorian has a podcast that is just fabulous but tonight he has posted a full list of OTHER security related podcasts that has my mouth watering. Can’t wait to get to a decent network connection to check these guys out.

Thanks Paul for looking out for the rest of us! 😉

    Since you live in BFE, you may have to wait a while for your better I-net connection.
