Play • 1 hr 16 min

Arun Vishwanath, a leading expert in human cyber risk, has held faculty positions at the University at Buffalo, Indiana University, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. He has published close to 50 peer-reviewed papers on human cyber vulnerabilities and also written for CNN, The Washington Post, and other major media outlets.

Special co-host Dr. Matthew Canham joins me as well. Matt is an expert in Cognitive Psychology, Social Engineering and the Human Factor of cybersecurity. He spent time at the FBI where he handled insider threat cases, managed their Emerging Technology Program and consulted with their Behavioral Analysis Unit.

We discuss his perspective on end user training tools, ineffectiveness of security awareness programs, injecting “human-factor” security into industry frameworks, developing security conscious habits, bridging the gap from Academia to industry, and his book, “THE WEAKEST LINK: HOW TO DIAGNOSE, DETECT, AND DEFEND USERS FROM PHISHING”.

 Danny Boy HOOKS us up with a “Phish Bowl”.
