This is the last podcast in the series from my time at SecTor. Kevin Coleman was the Chief Strategist at Netscape before becoming a Senior Fellow and Strategic Management Consultant with the Technolytics Institute – an executive think-tank. When Kevin talks security he is talking high level and on a global scale. He has testified before Congress on security matters including cyber warfare.
We had a great conversation on social engineering, the Storm worm and how a botnet could be used to conduct a cyber war on a country (it already happened earlier this year) and why security awareness for everyone is a crucial task that must be taken on. Take a listen and check out his session from SecTor, it will both frighten and enlighten (PDF and WMV available)
Let me just say that was truly interesting. What caught my interest was that predicition of a Metavirus. You know, that makes so much sense too. I've been dealing with viruses and spyware for so long and with the exception of the odd Winlogon\Notify pest, there's not been a lot of "Good ones"
Not that they're fun but any really "innovative" ones. Which keeps me thinking in the back of my head we're due for a doozy to come out. Never thought of a "MetaVirus" but it makes sense.
Thanks for the Cast, it was quite informative. I especially liked that bit about the fellow at the end with the "still active" company ID card.
