My husband is almost finished with his B.A. Computer Science with a focus on Networking. This week he has a homework assignment to listen to three weekly podcasts on the topic of computer security and provide a critique. Being the helpful spouse that I am, I am helping by using my Google-Fu skills to look up some decent sounding podcasts about computer and network security.
Always the blogger, I figured my readers might also be interested in the podcasts.The Security Response Podcast from Symantec is one that immediately caught my eye. Symantec is one of the mail leaders is network security, backup, and archiving solutions and I have enjoyed working with Symantec and Veritas products so it seemed a good place to start.
The CERT Podcast Series features conversations with experts in areas such as security threats, risk management, privacy, and trends. CERT is the Carnegie Mellon affiliated internet security response center funded primarily the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. Oh, and by the way after a big more Googling I have learned that CERT is not an acronym and does not stand for anything. It just is. Who knew?
Martin McKeay's Network Security Podcast is a slightly more chatty podcast series where he and co-host Rich Mogull cover network security topics. McKeay is a senior consultant for Verizon.
