Diversity & Threat Intelligence – Ping Podcast – Episode 24

Episode 24: Diversity & Threat Intelligence

As a continuation of our look at the cybersecurity career field, we turn our attention to diversity in threat intelligence, how it’s lacking, and why it’s important. On Episode 24 of Ping: A Firewalls.com Podcast, we welcome Roderick Chambers, Cyber Threat Intelligence Consultant with Recorded Future and Truman National Security Project Security Fellow. Roderick discusses his unique background, going from human intelligence in the CIA to cyber threat intelligence, how unique backgrounds should be embraced in cybersecurity, and why representation matters to help protect people online. We also discuss cyber threats relating to our rapidly deployed remote work environment. And we talk about whether you’d rather lose your cell phone or your wallet.

Watch Roderick’s Lighting Talk called Blacks in Intelligence and Threat Hunting. Then learn about the Blacks in CyberSecurity conference and networking group.

In our cyber headlines segment, we talk about a bust of an encrypted chat service for criminals in Europe. Then we hear about some dissatisfied Signal customers. And we wrap up with news of the Biden campaign’s focus on cybersecurity.
