The Southern Fried Security Podcast

The Southern Fried Security Podcast is designed to be an information security podcast that fills the gap between technical security podcasts and Security Now.

Episode 46 - Denial is not Just a River in Egypt

Once again, we have the whole gang together, as we discuss two groups of stories that fit together nicely.

We do have some upcoming cons for the southern oriented of us.

First is the upcoming BSidesAustin, held in sunny Austin, TX. It’s this weekend (March 11-12), and full details can be found athttp://www.keepsecurityweird.org/

A little farther down the road is the second year for HouSecCon. November 3rd, held in Houston, TX. The CFP just went out, and if last year was any indication, this year is gonna rock as well. Full details here: http://houstonseccon.com/

But on to the discussions of the week:

The first group of articles talks about the CSO’s relationship with the business, particularly in talking about the things that the business should know:

But you can’t talk about the business without talking about the technology side of things, and Andy’s favorite company, the Goog, has given us some good stuff to talk about this week. Android devices have been taking off rapidly, and Wells Fargo has given us some interesting insight into their inner workings by just saying “No.” to outside devices:
