Nerd Out Security Panel Discussion: EP 25. Buffalo and the Journey into Hate.
Play • 47 min
In the latest Nerd Out podcast, Dave is joined by Bridget Johnson to talk about the hostile event at the Top's Supermarket in Buffalo, New York. Looking at the attack through the lens of Gate 15's Hostile Events Attack Cycle (HEAC), Dave and Bridget talked about all the planning and preparedness that went into the attack as documented by the attacker's manifesto. Bridget went into length about the way the attacker outlined his beliefs while showcasing his admiration and reverence to previous attackers, especially the 2019 New Zealand mosque attacker. They wrapped up the pod with some thoughts for organizations to consider and how the lessons learned and behaviors identified can be applied to any location and organization. Bridget wrapped up up with some strong words that this manifesto is dangerous and deliberately speaks to a vulnerable group who may seek inspiration in their own lives. In addition, it represents a journey into hate that organizations need to be mindful of.
