InSecurity Podcast: Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Pete Schiefelbein: It’s Not Just Cybersecurity, It’s Information Security 

The Cyber Security Forum Initiative (CSFI) is a non-profit organization headquartered in Omaha, NE and in Washington DC with a mission "to provide Cyber Warfare awareness, guidance, and security solutions through collaboration, education, volunteer work, and training to assist the US Government, US Military, Commercial Interests, and International Partners." CSFI was born out of the collaboration of dozens of experts, and today CSFI is comprised of a large community of nearly 81,000 Cyber Security and Cyber Warfare professionals from the government, military, private sector, and academia.

Pete Schiefelbein is a key part of CSFI and works to provide the kind of training to military and private sector companies that can be the difference between a major data breach and just another day at the office.

In today’s episode of InSecurity, Matt Stephenson chats with Pete about a broad spectrum of topics including the evolution of the Marine Corps into a state of the art Cyber Defense unit as well its traditional role as an elite wartime fighting force. They dig into the notion of generational change and how it can effect a military organization. Further, Matt and Pete dig into the notion of information security compared to cybersecurity.

Oh… and for good measure, they even talk a bit about the fact that Pete and his son are both Eagle Scouts and the role scouting is playing in developing the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.
