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 91 - Lots of Numbers

For the first time in who knows how long, we had the whole crew on the show this evening, and we hit some really fun stories.

First, there are a few upcoming InfoSec events that you might want to be aware of. First, BSidesDFW is this upcoming weekend, November the 3rd: http://www.securitybsides.com/w/page/50488342/BSidesDFW%202012

Next weekend are three different BSides events, BSidesDelaware, Portland, and Jackson: http://www.securitybsides.com/w/page/28563447/BSidesDelaware http://www.securitybsides.com/w/page/40113672/BsidesPDX http://www.securitybsides.com/w/page/53447313/BSidesJackson

Then we jumped into our first story for the evening, the recent breach in South Carolina:

Once our heads stopped spinning from some of those quotes, we went into a pretty cool, old style hack that Barnes and Noble recently disclosed:

From those, we transitioned into a discussion on Incident Response:

As well as Mike Rothman’s great article on security tradeoffs:

After our MAD Security Minute for the week, we wrapped up with a discussion of IAM from Darkreading:
