What is your company’s vision? It’s a simple question, yet still, one that many entrepreneurs are unable to effectively answer this question in a cohesive manner when asked. Although the answer to this question will be unique to every leader, the premise behind the answer is that it must be written in ink.

Oleg was given the nickname of “the da Vinci of Visionary Leadership" due to his ability to create and execute a compelling vision for businesses while also identifying a manager's strategic needs in corporate culture and leadership.

Oleg’s wisdom transcends industries and experience levels, capturing my attention and leaving me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next great sound bite.

I’ve spoken with Oleg once before and have been clamoring to get him back on my podcast after hearing many of his incredible stories of perseverance and determination which continue to reverberate through my life to this day.

I just had this excellent interview with Brett Johnson, a keynote speaker, and consultant on cybersecurity, Cybercrime, and identity theft. His knowledge of these topics is unique because it didn't come from any book or in any classroom. Brett's experience is from the criminal side of things. At one point, the United States' Most Wanted criminal, he was given the moniker of The Original Internet Godfather by the United States Secret Service.

Brett was responsible for defining modern financial Cybercrime as we know it today. He created the precursor to today's Darknet markets called ShadowCrew. In the early 2000s, through ShadowCrew, He assembled a watering hole for cybercriminals to network, share information, gang up, and execute attacks on entities worldwide.

He lived a life of crime for decades. Credit card fraud, identity fraud, tax fraud, social engineering attacks- you name it; Brett Johnson did it. His criminal lifestyle eventually caught up to him as he was captured and convicted of 39 felonies, sent to prison multiple times, escaping once, before accepting responsibility and finding redemption through his loved ones and the help of the FBI.

Today, Brett works as a security consultant and public speaker. He is one of the world's foremost authorities on Cybercrime and identity theft. Brett uses the vast amount of knowledge he has to help individuals and companies protect themselves from the type of person he used to be.

Listen as Brett and I dive deep into how cybercriminals operate, what drives them, and the most common security threats.

In my conversation with Brett today, we discuss his strategy for laying out the foundation for modern cybercriminal channels. ShadowCrew sets the standard for the way modern cybercrime channels still operate today. Brett identifies the three websites, ShadowCrew, Counterfeit Library, and CarderPlanet, known to be the main cybercriminal channels. Brett also goes into detail on the question of how easy it is to commit fraud. He tells a story of the Nigerians committing fraud by stealing a billion dollars in unemployment. Brett speaks about how to protect yourself from a scam elaborating on a personal story that involved a woman being scammed by him through eBay. Finally, Brett talks about using his first-hand knowledge of Cybercrime for good as well as speaking to his superpower that he can see that helps in engagement with customers. That is my introduction to Brett, The Original Internet Godfather, and I want to welcome you to our exciting conversation.

Here are some of things that you will learn in this podcast episode:

  • The origins of ShadowCrew and how that led to today's Darknet markets.
  • How cybercriminals execute crimes and what they need in order to carry them out.
  • Global law enforcement is stepping their game up to track illicit activities using cryptocurrency.
  • The origins of Brett's life of crime.
  • The methods internet scammers use to take advantage of people online.
  • Criminals most often get caught when they raise unnecessary red flags.
  • How Brett was able to bounce back after hitting rock bottom in life.
  • Without social engineering, cybercrime ultimately fails.
  • Medical records are being used as the primary source of information for cybercriminals.
  • Why storytelling is important in getting employees to retain information presented to them in cybersecurity awareness training.

Today, my guest is Roger Grimes

Roger's expertise in the field of computer security is unparalleled. He describes himself as the best in the world when it comes to computer security defense- and he has the credentials to back up this assertion.

He works with Kevin Mitnick who he calls the best Offensive Security guy in the world, but he calls himself the best when it comes to Defense.

As all of you know by now I love Offense and Defense Innovation so this interview falls squarely into the category of Defense Innovation for sure.

With more than 40 computer certifications and twelve books authored or (Co-authored) on computer security, Roger has spent over three decades imparting his knowledge to audiences worldwide.

His current title is Data-Driven Defense Evangelist at KnowBe4. He is the author of the new book, Hacking Multifactor Authentication.

Roger is a 33-year senior computer security architect and cybersecurity veteran specializing in general computer security, identity management, PKI, Windows computer security, host security, cloud security, honeypots, APT, and defending against hackers and malware. He has worked at some of the world's largest computer security companies, including Foundstone, McAfee, and Microsoft.

In this time of remote workforces and distributed endpoints, Roger advocates for Multi-Factor Authentication. However, MFA is not the end all be all for security. The vast majority of hacking doesn't care about your MFA. It's all about reducing your risk, according to Roger.

Throughout his many years in the industry, Roger a universal mission that drives all of his actions- to make the internet a safer place. Roger says if he leaves the Earth without accomplishing that feat, he has failed.

I also provide how you can connect with him on Linkedin. He has over 25k followers.

We've been sold by the industry that MFA is a Warm Blanky and Panacea for all security ills.

Learn more deeply about this topic as it is critical to your distributed security architectures moving forward

I'm excited to share this conversation with such a distinguished and world-renowned Security Defense Specialist.

Here are useful topics, books, and resources discussed and what you will learn as you listen:

Why most companies today fail in risk-based security and how to avoid the most common pitfalls.
The benefits of enabling application control software like AppLocker in audit only mode.
Why assuming just because you have MFA that you can't be hacked is false and how smart application of MFA will reduce your risk of getting hacked.
Why push applications like FIDO are more effective than SMS-based multi-factor authentication.
The highest risk areas CIO's and CISO's need to avoid falling into when dealing with MFA.
Why MFA and other security measures like it are all about reducing your risk instead of eliminating it completely.

Sarah Angel-Johnson is the CIO at Year Up when this was recorded. She is now the CIO of Save The Children. She was named a 2020 Boston CIO ORBIE Award winner for Non-profit CIO of the Year. She has 20+ years of proven results in being a change agent at scale, starting with coding IBM's first e-commerce website to digitizing the $860 million Girl Scout Cookie Program for 2.1 million girls and adults. She has led global organizations of 150 managers and employees, provided direction to 25,000 matrix team members, managed 7 global labs, and drove $1.7 billion in revenue.

Sarah has excelled when thrown into new situations and asked to lead change within an organization. She realized early on in her career that she could step in and meld different people, processes, and content together in a way that most leaders couldn't.

As a leader, the question of how do I bring people together is an important one. Sarah and I answer this question, share stories, and discuss qualities that are important for a leader to have and how to connect with employees at a deeper level.

It's not enough to simply ask questions. What separates good from great leaders is fundamentally leading with inquiry. Asking open-ended questions, having a genuine interest and curiosity in what motivates people, and having the patience to see everything through are necessary when bringing people together to take action.

In my conversation with Sarah, you will hear how every step in her career has contributed to her overall success and shaped her leadership style. But no matter where her career has taken her, one thing remains the same- a desire to make an impact and help others at scale.

I'm excited for you to hear her story. Let's take a listen.

Here are some of the things that you will learn in this podcast episode:

The value of mentors in shaping career success.
How to retain your talent within an organization.
The importance of self-awareness and how it will lead to seeing your broader purpose.
Influencing people starts with asking what the human need is, and then designing technology around the human.
To find out what truly motivates someone, ask open-ended questions, and create a genuine human connection.
Human-centered design is more of a mindset than anything else.
How to tailor different methodologies for different situations.
Goals are driven by first, creating a shared vision, and then creating a shared mission.
The top 3 offenses and top 3 defenses for 2021.
Finding the perfect work/life integration is a sliding scale as long as you are continually analyzing and digesting for yourself.

My guest today is David Linthicum. David Linthicum is the Chief Cloud Strategy Officer at Deloitte Consulting and has been named the #1 Cloud Influencer via a major report by Apollo Research. David is a Cloud Computing Thought Leader, executive, consultant, author, and speaker, who has been a CTO five times for both public and private companies, and a CEO twice in the last 25 years.

Few individuals are true giants of cloud computing, but David's achievements, reputation, and stellar leadership have earned him a lofty position within the industry. It's not just that he is a top thought leader in the cloud computing universe, but he is often the visionary that the wider media invites to offer its readers, listeners, and viewers a peek inside the technology that is reshaping businesses every day.

More specifically, David is a Gigaom research analyst on cloud computing and enterprise applications and writes prolifically for InfoWorld as a cloud computing blogger. He is also a contributor to, IEEE Cloud Computing, Tech Target's SearchCloud, and SearchAWS, and is quoted in major business publications including Forbes, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, and the LA Times. David has appeared on NPR several times as a computing industry commentator, and he also does a weekly podcast on cloud computing.

With more than 13 books on computing, more than 5,000 published articles, greater than 500 conference presentations, and numerous appearances on radio and TV programs, David has spent the last 20 years leading, demonstrating, and teaching businesses how to use resources more productively while continuously innovating.

When I talked with David, he had recently written a great article that I loved, Cloud security secrets your cloud provider doesn't want you to know. Asking the obvious question was a perfect starting point for our conversation because I really wanted to know - What are the secrets some of the providers don't want you to know?

I'm excited for you to tune in to this compelling interview.

Here are some questions answered in this podcast.


Businesses have a tendency to learn from pain. Now is the time to think independently and question why things are currently done this way.
Cloud security will only improve in a culture that challenges the status quo.
We need to make architectural trade-offs as to what we can do pragmatically with the technology that's out there.
Security can hinder performance and cost way more money each month if not engineered into the applications and data stores correctly.
Why you should have a Cloud Complexity Management Methodology?
Cloud-native security solutions offered by the big providers are not helpful if you have a heterogeneous multi-cloud solution.
Training counts more than technology - every dollar you spend on cloud training, you remove a thousand dollars as the cost of risk from your system.
When you hire people, you need to hire people who are typically going to be continuous learners, autodidacts which is more than specific skill sets
How can you have one security system that's much better than three security systems even though that one security system doesn't cover every feature and function that you need?
Why create a security domain that deals with complexity and volatility that you can configure and change quickly.

As leaders in today's unprecedented time of disruption, we are being forced to make critical decisions based on fear and the unknown.

My guest today, Dave McKeown, is here to teach us how, you, as leaders can achieve your compelling vision. How you can strengthen communication and accountability plans even while facing evolving conditions in an environment where you have little control.

Dave is the Founder and CEO of Outfield Leadership, and author of the new book, The Self-Evolved Leader: Elevate Your Focus and Develop Your People in a World That Refuses to Slow Down.

In this podcast episode, Dave and I share insights on disruption and how leaders can focus on the short-term, high-impact goals to achieve long term vision.

Disruption has a way of bringing things into complete focus because we need to get things done with the fewest amount of resources. Organizations and leaders must ask the right questions, take a step back and look at what things they can to maintain alignment with revenue while adding value in that process.

When you get that right, that's when you get true alignment in your people, and in your teams because they can see a clear correlation between what they do every day and where your business is going.

Another great leadership strategy Dave shares is collective capabilities, bringing together everyone's collective consciousness and knowledge to increase the level of what we know, exponentially. This can be the difference between emerging from this event in a successful way with some momentum behind you, or emerging from this with a business that's no longer valid.

I'm excited for you to tune in to this compelling interview.

Here are some questions answered in this podcast.

  • What new leadership models are emerging during this unprecedented time of crisis?
  • What is the difference between bravery and heroic leadership?
  • How can a leader encourage collaboration across his teams in the midst of uncertainty?
  • How can leaders achieve more with less resources?
  • How does working with fewer resources bring clarity within an organization?
  • How do times of disruption present a significant opportunity for change within an organization?
  • Why is the decision making process more scalable when it's not dependent on only one individual?
  • How does using a collective capabilities' approach help navigate uncertainty more quickly?
  • Why is a good cultural fit' one of the greatest indicators of an employee's success within a company?
  • Emerging from this crisis, will there be a greater sense of humanity in leadership?
  • How can leaders shift their focus between short, medium and long-term goals?
