Introducing Ron Woerner
It’s great to have Ron on our show! He gets information security and he always has an interesting perspective on things.
- Open Discussion.
- Top of mind things.
- Current projects.
- Current events.
Pretty sure we’ll get to talk about Ron’s talks at RSA, his work/lectures at Bellevue University, social engineering things, information security as a life skill, and other goodies!
We’ll probably skip news in this show. Guessing that Brad, Ron, and myself will have no problem filling the entire show with good discussion.
