Podcast – John Lockie Interview (part one)

Over the next few months, I plan on doing a big podcast binge on cybersecurity careers and will continue my focus on technology.

This week’s episode, John Lockie and I talk about his background and how it’s not the traditional path into cybersecurity if there really is one.  He affirms my beliefs in regards to CISOs with music degrees.  You’ll never guess what he says!

Network Monitoring on the Cheap

I’ve regularly blogged about Suricata, Logstash and Elasticsearch.  Shoot, I’ve built multiple successful commercial tools using that technical stack.  The thing that made us successful wasn’t the tech, but it was how we used the tech to solve a problem that our customers had at that moment in time.

Now it’s time for me to share the secret on how to do it.

Ok, not a secret at all.  If you google, you can figure it out.

With this podcast, I want to introduce the topic to put some context around why those tools are the right tools.

I want to evangelize the idea of EVERYONE monitoring your home or work network with basic rules from places like Emerging Threats.  It’s free, and it’s invaluable to finding/stopping malware/viruses on your network.  Do it now!

This is another exciting podcast for the Decoder’s Ring series!

My friend Kent Brake joined me with a wealth of knowledge around cybersecurity and a few tools we can use to get a new network and host-based system monitoring.

Kent’s a seasons security architect and is currently working as a Solutions Architect for a company that you probably know.

In this podcast, we talk about how to start building a network security solution.  We discuss Bro, Suricata, Elasticsearch, Greylog, Splunk and all kinds of fun stuff you can use to create a new monitoring system.

OSQuery?  Yep, talked about that too!
