The UNSECURITY Podcast – Episode 52 Show Notes
Yay us! This is the one year anniversary of the UNSECURITY Podcast!
Episode 52. One year, one episode per week, fifty-two episodes. Hard to believe it’s already been a year. We didn’t miss a single week, and if you know us (well, me anyway), you know that’s almost miraculous. Some weeks were tough to get something recorded, but we did it anyway.
Last week was a good one around here. I’m not sure what Brad’s been up to because we haven’t caught up with each other yet.
For me, I gave a couple talks at a couple of conferences, made a short Dallas trip, and did some other neat stuff.
Last week was a great show with special guest, lead pen-tester, and all around awesome guy Eric Hanson. We’re pleased to have another special guest this week! David Kruse is joining us to share his perspectives on things. It’s gonna be another great show!
My show to lead this week and these are my notes.

[Brad] Of course he is.
[Evan] OK. Joining us this morning is a pretty swell guy, David Kruse. Good morning David!
[David] Unless we have technical issues, David will probably say something.
[Evan] You guys, I can’t believe this is the one year anniversary of the UNSECURITY Podcast! We’ll do the official One Year Anniversary Show next week, but let’s talk about this.
One Year Anniversary Discussion
- Reminiscing – some cool and some funny show moments
- People we’ve met, and some of our favorite peeps
- What’s next? Ideas.
[Evan] It’s been a good year. Here’s to an even better one ahead! OK, now let’s talk about you David.
Introducing David Kruse
- How’d you get here? – One of the most fascinating things David shared with me was his career path. It’s pretty wild. There are some interesting parallels between his path and mine. Should be a good talk!
- Cyber Insurance – David has some awesome cyber insurance experience and advice.
- Speaking – David does some speaking, including keynotes. Let’s get his perspective, tips, and tricks on this too.
[Evan] It’s great talking to you and it’s great knowing you David! Thanks for sharing brother. Let’s wrap the show up with some news stories.
[Evan] We’ve got two (maybe three) news stories to discuss this week, but one news story in particular that caught my eye was Google’s intended purchase of FitBit. Ugh.
- Google to Buy Fitbit for $2.1 Billion – https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/01/technology/google-fitbit.html – This is interesting and for some people it’s very troubling. Quotes from the article that make me a little uneasy are “the deal raises concerns that the internet company is gaining private health information about its users” and “Google said it would not use health data gleaned from Fitbit devices in its core advertising business.”
- Global Crime Ring Bilks U.S. Military Members, Vets Out of Millions – https://threatpost.com/global-crime-ring-bilks-military-vets/149799/ – This pisses me off.
- Solar, Wind Power Utility Disrupted in Rare Cyberattack – https://threatpost.com/solar-wind-power-utility-cyberattack/149816/
