Podcast: The Flip Side of Bots and Crawlers

A few months ago, Akamai Senior Enterprise Architect David Senecal wrote a post about ways to identify and mitigate unwanted bot traffic

Last week, I went into more detail on the subject with Matt Ringel (@ringel on Twitter), an enterprise architect in Akamai's Professional Services team. (Check out Matt's recent post, "You Must Try, and Then You Must Ask."). That resulted in the post "Bots, Crawlers Not Created Equally."

In addition to that post, we have a full audio recording of the conversation. Listen to it HERE.

I recently spoke with Meg Grady-Troia about her role in Akamai InfoSec, particularly the security training she does for new hires. 

In addition to training, Meg works to inform and educate Akamai sales staff and customers about platform security at Akamai. She also develops white papers, short documents and other materials, as needed, to support Akamai's development as a security company.

She also explains how she shifted from a career in restaurant management to security.
