14: Not fearing failure, and challenging the status quo, with Chris Leach

Security Stories

Business

Today we chat to Chris Leach, senior CISO Advisor at Cisco. From his background as an accountant (which he hated!) to venturing into cybersecurity ("I had to learn to speak in bits and bytes, after only speaking in 1s and 0s"), he has a fascinating story to share.  Chris also has some brilliant insights into how to be a great leader and role model for your team, and he has some really poignant thoughts on resiliency, bouncing back, and dealing with the fear of failure.Also in today's episode, Ben shares the highlights of his just-published research on threat landscape trends. The idea behind this work is to shed light on areas where you can quickly have an impact defending your assets, especially if you're dealing with limited security resources. You can read more about this in Ben's blog post.And finally our 'On this Day' feature takes us back to the movies! In honor of the 25th anniversary of the film Hackers, the team sits down to talk about what that movie got right, and perhaps, not so right, with some surprising reveals.  We also discuss what our own movies on cybersecurity would look like, if we were each in charge of screenwriting. Personally, we hope Noureen's idea does genuinely get greenlit!In October, we're doubling our production schedule to release episodes on topics that mean a lot to us, including careers and diversity in cybersecurity, and how to protect your loved ones from disinformation campaigns (or "fake news) online. It would be brilliant if you could subscribe to your podcast feed of choice so that you don't miss any of these exciting episodes.
