31: Building inclusive cultures, with Dug Song and Gene Hall
Play • 55 min

Joining today's episode are not one, but two distinguished guests. First of all, we have Dug Song, Cisco's Chief Security Strategy Officer. Dug is the founder of Duo Security which was acquired by Cisco in 2018, and he is one of the industry’s most passionate and outspoken voices about building inclusive cultures. 

We're also joined by Gene Hall, Vice President of Security Marketing at Cisco. Gene is a veteran of Cisco for over 20 years and is someone who is a great advocate for nurturing the next generation, and driving down barriers across the security industry.

Both Gene and Dug meet up with Hazel to discuss how they both got into the security industry and what issues they're passionate about. We also chat about how Duo was born, and the values that Dug led with which have stood the test of time.

We discuss the greatest security challenges that our customers are going through and how Cisco Secure is helping them through those.

We also talk about what we can all do as a collective industry to build more inclusive cultures, and address the security skills shortage. Plus, we learn how Dug got his motto of ‘Dig and be Dug in return’.
