A few weeks ago on Twitter, I teased that I was working on a new podcast called “Source Code”. Creating a podcast is something I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to pursue it until now. There are a lot of great podcasts in the information security space already, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be guests on a couple of them. So, what makes mine different (aside from being able to make fun of my accent)?
Source Code is an information security podcast that’s all about education. Rather than simply providing technical segments or news, Source Code is focused on the people that push information security forward and battle in the trenches every day.
We interview practitioners from every facet of information security about their origin story. This includes how they go their start, how they got into the field, and the career decisions that made them successful (or slowed them down) along their path. It’s the story of their source code — what makes them tick. We also talk about current opinions on the state of security education to include what we’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong.
You’ll hear from plenty of household names you’ve heard of, as well as some people you should know about with interesting back stories and unique contributions to the field. Source Code celebrates the diversity of backgrounds that makes information security a unique place to exist.
The #1 question I get asked is “How do I get into infosec?” My hope is that through this podcast, I create a library of stories that can help answer that question by showing people that there are a ton of different ways to get started, and each one can lead to great success.
The podcast will live here: http://www.chrissanders.org/podcast
