NCF-33 IT is Obsolete, Lead with Cyber Security Or Go Out of Business

April 19, 2017

The most memorable quote from today's guest is that IT is Obsolete. Professor Andre Hinton who also works as a cyber Lead for the United States Air Force talks about the trend in acquisitions for cyber products within the leading agencies in the United States Government. He says when proposals come to them for any communications project that do not have Cyber Security as top priority, they go straight to the bottom of the stack. Our Government agencies have shifted their paradigm and now place Cyber Security as number one priority on their mission list.

Prof. Hinton is also a subject matter expert for the newly implemented Risk Management Framework (RMF). If you are looking to shift jobs or address the hottest issues in Cybersecurity today, you will want to hear what he has to say about RMF.

Thanks for Joining our Show today Prof. Hinton.

NFC-32 Handling Health Care Medical Record Privacy

April 12, 2017

The Privacy of individual Medical records is something that should concern everyone. Medical records are the one thing we don't want just any company to have access too. Today's guest Mike Schmidt Suggest CEO of Ensemble Ventures is working on a new type of medical records exchange where the record owner has to give permission for each use of their record and then receives payment anytime a company would like to use their information for studies or analysis.

Imaging a “Pay me for my data” model vs today's landscape where every large company has a copy of your record. This would definitely change the way we think about privacy.

Thanks for joining today Mike, and we will all be looking for the Medical Record Exchange as soon as it is operational.

NCF-30 Private Investigators Adopt Cyber Hunting Techniques

March 28, 2017

Cyber Private Investigator Craig Smith joins us today while in the middle of a surveillance operation. His is a great perspective that you don't hear very often because it lives in a shadowy hidden world that most of us don't know exist.

Todays Conversation really makes me question the direction we are heading as a culture when it comes to privacy. Are we willing to accept a world where everything on the web is for sale for a price somewhere? You will be surprised how much the content you think is private is out for sale by marketers and surveillance sites on the internet.

When we asked Craig his advice for cyber economic growth, he said to make sure that we don't want to forget the offensive cyber security options. Find out what he means by this in today's show.

We cover many areas from Cyber internship programs to specialized training to prepare our youth for the real world.

Dr. Cooper made several references to a summer cyber internship program that was provided to high school students in partnership with the Cyber Resilience Institute. This Sports ISAO program was not only a great success but was enjoyed by many of the students that took part.

NCF-28 Understanding the Concerns and Interest of Our Young Cyber Talent

March 15, 2017

Today we have a different type of guest, a new college graduate who is seeking his first job in the cyber security industry. Steven Luber who graduated last year from Mercyhurst University with a degree in Cyber Intelligence joins our host in exploring what are youth are seeking as they enter today's job market.

You may be surprised to hear that with no expectation for job security our young people are turning to job satisfaction as their primary driver for selecting a job and even an entire career. I am hearing more and more that “Show me the money” mentality is out of fashion in a big way.

Hear what is motivating the next generation….

NCF-27 Answering the Existential Question of Our Age, Cyber Security

March 7, 2017

Today's guests are the top leadership at Denver University, Chancellor Rebecca Chopp and  JB Holston Dean of Computer Science and Engineering at DU. This was one of the most insightful conversations I have had so far. Chancellor Chopps expressed the best non-technical definition of cyber security I have ever heard.

“Cyber Security is the Existential Question of our age that we all need to answer”

Not only does this express the foundation of a new generation but also shows the direction that Denver University is taking to create an entire university education experience where Cyber Security is the center feature. This is a direction that we are seeing more and more as cutting edge industry experience become the top need for higher education.

Thank you Chancellor Chopp and JB Holston for joining us today. It has been an honor and pleasure having you on the show.
