Chris Hadnagy specializes in understanding how malicious attackers exploit human communication and trust to obtain access to information and resources through manipulation and deceit. His goal is to secure companies by educating them on the methods used by attackers, identifying vulnerabilities, and mitigating issues through appropriate levels of awareness and security.
Chris, is the founder and CEO of Social-Engineer. Chris possesses over 16 years experience as a practitioner and researcher in the security field. His efforts in training, education, and awareness have helped to expose social engineering as the top threat to the security of organizations today. What I found fascinating from Chris' bio is that he is a certified Expert Level graduate of Dr. Paul Ekman's Micro Expressions courses, having made the study of non-verbal behaviors one of his specialties.
He established the world's first social engineering penetration testing framework at www.social-engineer.org, providing an invaluable repository of information for security professionals and enthusiasts. That site grew into a dynamic web resource including a podcast and newsletter, which have become staples in the security industry and are referenced by large organizations around the world. Chris also created the first hands-on social engineering training course and certification, Advanced Practical Social Engineering.
A sought-after writer and speaker, Chris has spoken and trained at events such as RSA, Black Hat, and various presentations for corporate and government clients. Chris is also the best-selling author of three books My favorite was - Phishing Dark Waters: The Offensive and Defensive Sides of Malicious Emails, which is his latest that I read. You can access all the link to his books, website, etc. at www.redzonetech.net/podcasts

Major take – aways from this episode are:

  1. Reminder: you can download the transcript of the entire interview at redzonetech.net/podcast.
  2. A classic story of a Social Engineering hack that Chris did is at the 12 minute mark; it is a great example that will remind you of what you need to do to train employees.
  3. The importance of the brain and amygdala as it relates to IT Security.
  4. The importance of the psychology of security.
  5. The importance of non-verbal facial expression and body language.
  6. How to trigger empathy and compassion in a target which really shows how this method is so effective.
  7. The role of mirror neurons.
  8. You will understand the brain and how it reacts to fear, emotion, and danger in relation to social engineering hacks.
  9. @ 35 minutes learn about What is a BEC Scam – Business Email Compromise and how to avoid it.
  10. The difference between Whaling, Vishing, and Phishing.

I have linked up all the show notes on redzonetech.net/podcast when you can get access to Chris Hadnagy’s books and publications.

I first learned about Brian MacKenzie when I was training for my first Ironman’s and I read his books about endurance and mobility and he changed my concepts about what was possible with running. Basically, pounding out miles just doesn’t work as you get older (and when younger too). But this doesn’t apply to just running…… Brian applies exponential training approaches to optimize human performance; he relentlessly challenges conventions and tests assumptions. Recently I was reacquainted with Brian’s work when I started training with Wim Hof's cold and breathing methods and was looking to see who else was interested in them….. So I reached out to ask him on the show.

 Major take – aways from this episode are:

  1. How you can change anything with 10 breaths.
  2. Using breathing techniques to amplify, deepen and quicken meditation benefits.
  3. The power of breath work to stabilize mood regulation and reactive behavior patterns.
  4. Co2 adaptation + Integrating breathing, ice and heat.
  5. How to activate the Vagus nerve.
  6. Importance of diaphramatic breathing.
  7. Using breathing to access Flow States.
  8. Proper breathing technique for sport, business and life.
  9. Mobility – the importance of keeping tissue supple.
  10. Eating principles vs fads to follow that Brian coaches people on related to a) Vegetables; b)humanely treated animal protein (not stressed); c) High quality fats.
  11. The impact of a) sugar; b) processed foods; c) hydration; d) high quality breads.
  12. Must read and listen to Netflix video by Mike Pollan, “Cooked” and In Defense of Food – An Eaters Manifesto.
  13. Taking personal responsibility of your health by engaging your doctor.
  14. Benefits of getting your genetics tested (Wellness fx).
  15. Dumbing down technology so that you can feel again.
  16. Mike Rowe on the importance of working opportunities not passion.

I have linked up all the show notes on redzonetech.net/podcast where you can get access to Brian’s blog publications.

It took a while to get John Sileo on the show after my team heard him speak at an ISACA conference. He is a very in demand speaker and you will see why soon.

John Sileo’s identity was stolen and used to embezzle $300,000 from his clients. The exposure destroyed John’s career and consumed two years of his life as he fought to stay out of jail.

Combining real-world experience with years of study, John became an award-winning author and leading expert on cyber security, identity theft and data privacy.

John is CEO of The Sileo Group, a data security think tank that helps organizations protect the information that drives their profits. His body of work includes engagements with the Pentagon, USA Today, Visa, 60 Minutes, Homeland Security, Rachael Ray, Schwab and organizations of all sizes.

John graduated with honors from Harvard University and spends his free time with his remarkable wife and two highly spirited daughters.

Major take – aways from this episode are:

  1. Why do you start with Why? With IT Security. Security starts with a person behind the social security number.
  2. The Difference between Offense (CIO) and Defense (CSO) for IT Business Leaders.
  3. The importance of splitting the role of CSO away from the CIO – so that you don’t have defense reporting to offense.
  4. Renting CSO Services vs buying.
  5. Building security as a habit – Review the Book by Charles Duhigg Power of Habit:Why We Do What We Do In Life and Business.
  6. Build one new habit into your IT Sec Program.
  7. The importance of company culture and IT Security.
  8. Do you celebrate IT Security wins at the highest levels?
  9. Celebrate the reductions of employee errors clicking on phishing attempts.
  10. 3 ways to protect your data from a ransomware. See John Sileo’s website.
  11. Of the people he has studied 90% of the people who have paid the ransom only 50% receive the key to unlock their data.
  12. The Neuroscience of the Pre-frontal cortex, Cortisol, amygdala and how it applies to IT Security.
  13. Review your greatest threat protection and the role of HR.

The challenge for many CIOs is that Board discussions regarding IT Security still lack a common language and toolset with which to accurately convey the security profile of the organization.
CFOs, on the other hand, have numerous commonly accepted tools they can use to present the financial health of the organization and drill down to any level of detail. Using a common lexicon, they can even compare data over a monthly or yearly basis to provide a clear picture of progress, or lack of it. The data is trusted. The tools are trusted. The CFO is trusted.
Until recently, CIOs have had to struggle to build the same level of trust with the Board because there was no comparable reporting system for IT Security. As a result, CIOs could easily get caught up in the latest shiny toys or distraction-of-the month discussions with individual Board members and fail to address IT Security threats. For CIOs, the consequences included mission failure and personal failure.
In this podcast, I explore the challenges and opportunities CIOs face when they present security issues to the Board. With challenges come opportunities. The opportunities are created when CIOs understand the critical role they play in distilling the complexities of IT Security and coaching the Board. These activities build trust, and once achieved, drive investment decisions that protect the business. Getting to that point is the topic of this episode.
