Tuesday, I wrote a post about five security podcasts worth your time. This is a sequel post, directing you toward six more great podcasts that'll make you smarter and better informed about all things InfoSec.
Though we have our own show called the Akamai Security Podcast and spend a lot of time promoting it in this blog, there are many other security podcasts worth your time. What follows are six favorites.
Akamai Security Advocate Dave Lewis hosts this podcast with James Arlen, Matt Johansen and Ben Sapiro.
London-based Akamai Security Advocate Martin McKeay hosts one of the longest-running and most popular podcasts in the industry.
Join Andy Willingham, Martin Fisher, and Steve Ragan as they discuss information security, news, and interview interesting folks. They focus on the operational and leadership aspects of information security using a distinctly southern viewpoint.
4.) Exotic Liability
Chris Nickerson and Ryan Jones tackle a wide range of security topics in this podcast. Here's how they describe it: Exotic Liability will push you into the new generation of Security. On your own or by force, Chris Nickerson and Ryan Jones will be bringing you the best content from the TOP/ middle and Sewers of the Security industry. No more firewall admins speculating about how attacks happen, these are the pros or even the bad guys. These are the people that make Security tick. If you are tired of the old solutions and rhetoric, join in.
Arguably one of the most popular podcasts on the Internet, Paul Asadoorian and crew live stream the show for video as well as audio. Regular guests include Tenable Security's Jack Daniel.
Patrick Gray takes a "lighthearted" look at information security news and features.
Akamai's Prolexic Security Engineering Response Team (PLXsert) has seen a significant resurgence in the use of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) reflection attacks this past month.
In an advisory, PLXsert said these DDoS attacks abuse the SNMP protocol, which is commonly supported by network devices such as printers, switches, firewalls and routers.
