Once again, the podcast team is unable to get together long enough to record a podcast.  Rich is off wandering around China and Zach had to answer an emergency bat signal somewhere in Gotham Park.  Which left Martin alone with Josh Corman, newly appointed Director of Security Intelligence at Akamai.  As usual with these two, the discussion went a little longer than it should have, but it was at least mildly amusing.  Once, or twice.  Josh speaks about his decision to move to Akamai, as well as revealing one or two other ‘secrets’.

See everyone at Defcon!

Rich is away for a bit, so we’re joined by friend-of-the-show Josh Corman, who’s here to give his two cents on this week’s stories and talk about some upcoming events.

Incidentally, Martin and Josh are on a panel at B-Sides Las Vegas this year, entitled “Better to burn out than to fade away?”, and they’re conducting a survey about stress/burnout in the security industry. Please take five minutes to participate at http://svy.mk/omyUer

And on a *very* serious note, Diana Lewis, the wife of another friend-of-the-show, Dave Lewis, was recently diagnosed with leukemia. For more information about Diana, and how you can help her and others, see James Arlen’s post over at Liquidmatrix Security Digest.

Be sure to check out the BloodKode Challenge and the Be The Match registry drive at DEFCON, to help those like Diana and Ninja Networks’ BarKode (more information).

As the countdown to Doom in Vegas, or BSides/Defcon/Black Hat as some might call it, Rich, Zach and Martin take a little break from the news to talk to one of the people who helped come up with the idea of BSides, Jack Daniel. Jack gives us a little bit of background on how the concept of BSides started, how it’s changed from a small one time event to become a world wide phenomenon. This year’s BSides Las Vegas will be the largest BSides event yet. It’s amazing how popular an event that started as a bunch of people whining on twitter a few years ago has become.

With BlackHat/DEFCON and B-Sides Las Vegas only a month away, the fellas are back and getting primed (well, their livers are, anyway). The usual roundabout collection of stories, barbs, and blathering fill this week’s show, ending on a sad note. This past weekend, acclaimed security and privacy researcher and advocate, Len Sassaman, passed away. While we at Network Security Podcast did not know Len personally, we are great admirers of his contributions to the industry, the community, and the world.
