Are you a CIO, CSO, CISO, VP of IT, Dir of IT, SR VP of IT?

What does it cost you to manually examine threat intelligence information? Are you doing it at all?

If you are an IT decision maker you will want to listen to what Aharon Chernin, CTO of Soltra and I discuss related to Aharon’s expertise with STIX and TAXII. The STIX/TAXII standard is the future of IT Security as it relates to scaling access to actionable and relevant threat information that we can do something about versus being overwhelmed about yet more false positives. We discuss how sharing and teaching machines how to speak to each other about threat information is the vision of the future.

What if you could receive information from the FBI, DHS, and Cert for example and this could be ingested into your security machines, devices, software, etc and you didn’t need an analyst to make sense of the data? This is the vision of IT Security that I want you to consider. Only 1% of organizations have security analysts on staff. Why?....because humans are expensive and good ones are hard to scale to the level of threats all business from small to the mega-large are experiencing. Aharon is hard at work on this right now.w.

My discussion with Jean Gomes, Chairman of the Energy Project is a fascinating one.

Jean works with some of the largest IT companies in the world like Google and Yahoo as well as Sony and other brands. We discuss how he teaches leaders of companies to build their latent capacities in today’s accelerating world. I  am a huge believer in tapping our reserves of potentialThis show will change your perception on what you are capable of. This is not an episode about how to push the wheel faster or keep more plates spinning. The role of a leader today demands that we tap all of our reserves and capabilities so that we can pull off the good that we were destined to create. 

Our discussion is not about chasing how efficiently you can mow the lawn or plow the field.

You can’t do this if you are exhausted or depressed.  We review cutting edge research on the topics of health, wellness, and neuroscience as it relates to optimal performance.
