Attack and Defense: Experts to Debate Cybersecurity Threats on Podcast

Cybersecurity panel discussion podcast

As if a deadly virus wasn’t enough, 2020 is seeing a rise in cybersecurity threats riding on the backs of chaos. For example, there’s been a sharp rise in domain-impersonation attacks aimed at conversation hijacking.

On October 8th at 1 p.m. PT on the TWiT Live Stream, a panel of security experts will discuss five common attack scenarios and the best practices to defend against them. And this won’t be your typical panel discussion. Panelists will be divided into “attackers” and “defenders,” each presenting their cases. The Attack and Defense panel discussion will become a special podcast on the TWiT Events feed.

Expect to hear a lively discussion between Chief TWiT Leo Laporte, security guru Bruce Schneier, IT expert Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ, This Week in Enterprise Tech’s Brian Chee, and Gerald Beuchelt, Chief Information Security Officer at LastPass by LogMeIn. This event is sponsored by LastPass.

There’ll be a live Q&A at the end with questions collected through Twitter, so be sure to follow TWiT on Twitter. Subscribe to TWiT Events to get the special podcast as soon as it’s ready. 

This panel is the third in the series, Cybersecurity & Identity Trends, Unlocked, sponsored by LastPass. The first was held in October 2019, and the recording is available as a podcast here. The second panel discussion, The Future of Securing Digital Identity, was held in May 2020 and also available as a podcast.
