In episode 70 of the We Hack Purple Podcast Host Tanya Janca speaks with Meghan Jacquot, who she met at OWASP Global AppSec in Dublin, Ireland. Tanya talked her into being on the podcast, and all of us get to hear about threat modelling (horizontally and vertically!), how women choose which conferences to attend, how to reduce physical risks when traveling, how to do security research and perform ‘good’ at the same time (“Cyber for good”), any her countless volunteer efforts to make our industry more welcoming. Meghan will be giving a talk at RSAC about how “You Are Not an Island - Threat Model as a Team”. With all of that, we somehow still had time to talk about interest span versus attention span. This is an episode you don’t want to miss!
Meghan Jacquot is a Security Engineer with Inspectiv and focuses on vulnerabilities and attack surface management. She is particularly interested in cloud security, threat intelligence, investigating vulnerabilities, and the ethical use of data. Meghan shares her research via conferences and publications. Throughout the year, she helps a variety of organizations and folks including DEF CON as a SOC GOON, Diana Initiative, OWASP, SANS, and WiCyS. To relax she also spends time visiting national parks, gardening, and hanging with her chinchilla. She’s happy to connect with others on LinkedIn and Mastodon.
