Podcast Show Notes and Audio



In the first episode of True Colors of Cyber Security, Mike Gentile, President and CEO of CISOSHARE offers his thoughts on the coming trends in the information security space this year.

The past few years in cyber security will have an impact on the way businesses will approach cyber security moving forward. Regulations like HIPAA, CFPB, and others have lost the ability to punish organizations that aren’t in compliance, and companies are experiencing a constant state of attack. All of this has led to a change in the way companies approach their information security programs.

We discuss the shift away from compliance-based security into business-based security and how organizations are trying to invest more into their security programs.

We take a look at the way accountability for security programs is changing the dynamic of responsibility between CISOs and CIOs.

Finally, with our theme of looking at the truth in cyber security, we touch on the problem of the lack of authenticity at the board level — what causes it, and how organizations will break the cycle of building ineffective security programs.

About the Podcast

Progress Starts with the Truth

Cyber security is a topic that forces people to make decisions that often evoke emotion behind them. Whether you're new to the discipline or a veteran, it’s that feeling you get after having to make a change to a security board report. You want to play by the rules and do the right thing — but is it always possible? Does everyone else?

Born and based in California, True Colors of Cyber Security creates an honest learning and teaching forum for anyone that wants to make integrity-based decisions in cyber security. To enable this type of decision-making, our podcast explores relevant cyber security issues with blunt candor based on real-world scenarios and experience.

This is information and insight not found in security textbooks, white papers, or the common security presentation. But it's knowledge that can be used by anyone to explore the boundaries of their moral code, and most importantly, do their definition of the right thing in today's complex security landscape.
