Introducing New Podcast Series on ITSP Radio
 

The New Factor

An column and podcast series with Chenxi Wang

"Every a few years there comes a disruptor, a company or an entrepreneur, that led the charge and disrupted existing industries with new ideas and innovative approaches. Behind every disruption, there is a story that shaped the journey from an idea to an established business. I want to explore that story in this podcast: the idea, the entrepreneur, the investor, and the journey"

Tune in for a new episode, every time Chenxi gets inspired.

Chenxi Wang introduces her new ITSPmagazine column and podcast series, The New Factor

Chenxi Wang brings her academic research and market analysis expertise to ITSPmagazine with her new column, The New Factor. Hear her - in this introductory podcast with ITSPmagazine Co-Founders Sean Martin and Marco Ciappelli - describe some of the trends she will be exploring, technologies she will be dissecting, and innovation journeys she will be following... all with the aim of identifying disruptive technologies that move us beyond what she calls "the new cyber reality."


The New Gearhead

"Along with death and taxes we now have technology and what you don't know will, without doubt, bite you in the ass. I'm here to help you defend your derriere."
 

Tune in for a new episode, almost every Thursday.

Mixing the opinion elements captured in his Backspin column and the tech elements from his Gearhead column, veteran InfoSec expert, author, and journalist, Mark Gibbs, brings his new column - The New Gearhead - to ITSPmagazine!

Debra had a lively discussion with Melanie Ensign, Head of Privacy & Security Communications at Uber, Board Member at Women in Security & Privacy, and Lead Press Goon for DEF CON


The Tech Effect

A podcast series with Ariel Robinson

“This is The Tech Effect: the complacency driven by the complexity of the technology ecosystem, and a rejection of responsibility for individual and collective safety, security, and ethics. It’s time to take charge of our digital future.”
 

Tune in for a new episode, almost every Wednesday.

 

Latest episodes

Rise of the Machines - Part One. (Yes, we went there.)

How did access to computers turn from a need, to a want, to an expectation and assumption? What drove these shifts? How has the technology held up as its use has changed over time?

We’ve got some answers, this week on The Tech Effect. Sam Visner, Georgetown University School of Foreign Services adjunct professor and Vice President/Manager of Cybersecurity and Resilience at ICF International guides us through the history of computing, from analog tables that calculated torpedo launch settings to the first networks, the monopoly and break-up of AT&T, and the rise of the commercial internet. We also have a few exciting announcements-- so tune in, and join the conversation at #TheTechEffect.


Diverse IT

A column and podcast series with Selena Templeton

"We all know about the lack of diversity in the technology industry. Lately, everybody’s been talking about it, but who is actually walking the talk?"
 

Tune in randomly. The schedule of this series is unpredictable, yet well worth it, just like the host. 

 

Latest episodes


An InfoSec Life

A column and podcast series with Sean Martin

"We are all responsible for our own cybersafety. No vendor, service provider, nor government entity will (be able to) save us."
