Ep. 6: David Masson on the Fragility of OT Networks

How can massive plants and machines designed to do the same task for decades on end be “fragile”? It’s because it’s actually fairly easy to stop them. That’s why it’s so important to protect OT networks from cyberattacks. This week, we talk to David Masson of Darktrace about the fragility of OT networks and the IT/OT divide.

Ep. 5: Matt Leipnik on Building a Cybersecurity Culture

Although cybersecurity usually falls to the IT group, it should never be the responsibility of a single department. It needs to be shared and embraced throughout an entire organization. What better time to talk about building a culture of cybersecurity than Cybersecurity Awareness Month! This week, we talk to Matt Leipnik of Nexus Controls about why cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is here, and we’re talking basic cyber hygiene like updating software and using stronger passwords.

Ep. 3: Haydn Povey on the State of IIoT Security

How critical is the need for better security in the next generation of IIoT products? With the World Economic Forum taking it up as a cause, IIoT is moving to the forefront of cybersecurity concerns. Guest Haydn Povey, founder of Secure Thingz and chief security officer at IAR Systems, discusses the state of IIoT security and why industrial devices are under attack more than ever.

Ep. 2: Eric Byres on the Supply Chain Attacks

Protecting the supply chain is more important than ever, especially with the rise in supply chain attacks. Why are these attacks so prevalent, and what can be done about them? Eric Byres, CTO of aDolus, provides insights on supply chain risk, government interventions and how SBOMs can help.

Ep. 1: Haley Turner on Ransomware

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Ransomware attacks are surging, with major companies like Colonial Pipeline and JBS Foods in the crosshairs. Why is it on the rise, and what can be done about it? Guest Haley Turner, director of industrial security at Darktrace, talks to us about the IT/OT spillover effect, targeting ICS systems, and the threat to critical infrastructure.
