Play • 1 hr 5 min

Meet Mark Weatherford, who has one of the most impressive cybersecurity CVs we’ve ever seen! Learn how he created the U.S Navy’s first ever Red Team, and how he was hired by Arnold Schwarzenegger to help "change the way California did technology".  

Mark also talks about how he worked with many different groups to get laws passed to formerly establish a security program for the first time in several US states…And we talk about how Batman fits into all of this….

Also in this episode, Ben and Hazel celebrate the anniversary of Snort becoming open source in our 'On this day" feature. It's a fascinating story that starts with a rainy day/weekends project that entered into the Hall of Fame as one of the best pieces of open source software of all time.

And finally in our "Emerging threats" segment, Ben talks about a previously unknown type of Remote Access Trojans, recently discovered by Cisco Talos, which we're calling "PoetRAT." We talk about the unique features of this RAT, its impact, and what organizations can do to protect themselves.
