Losing Sleep over Security: A Halloween Review
ThreatTalk season 3 episode 18
There is no shortage of “Scary Stories” for Halloween or Cybersecurity Awareness month this year. But a lot of them, despite the media hype, won’t cause most security professionals to lose any sleep. But others might. So, we’ve invited back Ed Hunter, the CISO for Infoblox, to talk about the last year and what threats, trends or technologies landed on his list of things to be concerned about.
