Episode 80 - Leveraging MITRE ATT&CK with Chris Kennedy

by Hacker Valley Studio

Show Notes

In this episode of the Hacker Valley Studio podcast, hosts Ron and Chris speak with 25-year cybersecurity veteran Chris Kennedy.  Chris is the Chief Information Security Officer and the VP of Customer Success for AttackIQ, and he and the hosts discuss various topics related to cybersecurity and Chris’s background, with special focus on the MITRE ATT&CK framework

The beginning of the episode centers on Chris Kennedy himself, as he provides background information on both himself and his company.  Chris’s career took many turns preparing him for his current role, with a few especially remarkable highlights: he was one of the first cybersecurity officers in the Marine Corps, worked for the world’s largest hedge fund, and was basically one of the first CISO's in tech.  As an executive, he saw how much he depended on the ecosystem of security tech, and he also saw how unreliable this technology was.  This realization paved the way for his move to AttackIQ.
