Geopolitics, APTs and Cybersecurity with Dan Holden

by Cyber Ranch

Show Notes

Dan Holden, 20+ year industry veteran, former vendor and current CISO at Big Commerce joins Allan Alford at the ranch to talk about the BIG picture.  Join them on this wild trail ride that goes as far back as the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, the pre-cursors to WWI, Regan-era cyber doctrine, cyber and modern warfare, lessons learned from the COVID economy (hint: GDP is now part of critical infrastructure), famous APT heists, modern global imperialism... This show ties these threads together into a forward-looking vision for cybersecurity that includes shifts in global prioritization of cybersecurity, federal regulations, and changes to the VC investment landscape.  Saddle up and get ready for a wild ride!
