#015 – Cris Thomas (aka Space Rogue): This Isn’t a New Problem
Cris Thomas (aka Space Rogue) is a strategist for Tenable. With more than two decades of experience, he commands an uncanny ability to link disparate events, read between the lines and distill complex, technical information into readily understandable, accessible and actionable intelligence.
I have been following Space Rogue's work since the 90's and am delighted to have him on the show. I encourage people to go back and watch the famous testimony from Cris and the rest of L0pht from almost 20 years ago. It's scary that so many of the issues called out then, still exist today.
In this episode we discuss CyberSquirrel1, FUD and cyber war, the growth of the RSA conference, the start of L0pht heavy industries, L0pht's famous testimony before congress, security basics, and much more.
