Show Notes

In episode 66 of the We Hack Purple Podcast Host Tanya Janca sits down with one of her colleagues from IANs Research, Wolfgang Goerlich! We talked about his work and AMAZING team at Cisco (Hi Wendy and Dave!), how they were originally part of Duo Security, and that they missed their chance for a fun rebrand of Duo + Cisco = Disco! Besides all the silly jokes, we talked about what security looks like beyond just vulnerabilities and trying to keep the bad guys out. We zeroed in on legitimate users that misuse systems, and dug into how Threat modelling and diversity could be used to prevent situations such as the infamous apple AirTags misuse. We talked about including privacy as part of threat modelling, Cara Bloom’s Mitre Privacy Framework (https://www.usenix.org/system/files/pepr22_slides_bloom.pdf), ‘least data collection’, as well as using nudge economics to promote positive security and privacy culture change. This conversation was AWESOME.

 Plus, Wolfgang has a podcast (https://www.securingsexuality.com/), a conference (Detroit, 2023), and a book coming out! If you ‘colour outside the lines’, you definitely want to check out everything Wolf does! Subscribe his newsletter, we know we did!
