I ask my guests several questions including:

  • What topics are you tired of in cybersecurity?

There are also some special interviews at the end - discussions about the RSA conference itself, tech stack sprawl, and personal branding and marketing for CISOs.  Oh - and a question about how vendors and CISOs can work better together AND a conversation about how government and industry can work together in cybersecurity.

Give this one a listen!  It's jam-packed with great insights!
