Getting started and moving up in IT and security

Professional development, Compliance, Cybersecurity
George McPherson, host of the “Blak Cyber” podcast, has an impressive background in IT and information security. On today’s episode, he discusses his cybersecurity journey, talks about his mentors and inspiration, and shares advice for learning cybersecurity and moving up the career ladder.

When George McPherson was pulled through the ranks and pinned as a 21-year-old Sergeant in the U.S. Army over 20 years ago, he learned two things about himself. He could accomplish anything he put his mind to, and he would always pull others up if he was in a position to do so. George prides himself on integrity, an insane work ethic, attention to detail and (his greatest super power) outside-the-box creativity. With 25 years in the technology industry, the first 18 in telecom and the last seven in cybersecurity, George has had the opportunity to work in industries such as the military, telecom, local government, healthcare and electric utility.

Protecting sensitive information: Growing data, regulations and risks

Professional development, Compliance, Cybersecurity
The amount of data organizations hold has exploded — along with the risk it poses. Today’s guest is Very Good Security CEO and co-founder Mahmoud Abdelkader, who wants to solve the problem of sensitive data by removing it from the equation (by replacing it with decoy data). It’s an intriguing idea as having less worry about data security frees resources up to focus on other areas of cybersecurity. Mahmoud talks about the future of data security, how these new solutions do and don’t help with privacy regulations, and what cybersecurity professionals can do to prepare for a future where the amount of data continues to grow every year.

Mahmoud Abdelkader is the CEO and co-founder of Very Good Security. He was previously CTO and co-founder of Balanced Payments (exited to Stripe). Prior to that, Mahmoud designed automated product matching systems at Milo.com (acquired by eBay) and built high-frequency trading systems for Wachovia Securities, now a part of Wells Fargo. With experience ranging from Wall Street to early-stage startups, Mahmoud is passionate about democratizing data security. He started Very Good Security to make best-in-class security and compliance attainable for businesses of all sizes.

Security awareness: How to influence others and change behavior

Professional development, Phishing, Security awareness, Cybersecurity
Bruce Hallas has a lot to say about security awareness and the fostering of security culture throughout an organization. His podcast, “Rethinking the Human Factor,” is now also a book, and he recently spoke at our Infosec Inspire Cyber Skills Virtual Summit. On today’s episode, Bruce talks about changing behaviors rather than setting rules, new ways to think about security awareness, and different industry and job search tips, particularly for those who want to get involved with cybersecurity in a totally non-technical capacity.

Bruce Hallas is an enthusiastic advocate, consultant, trainer and speaker in the field of information security awareness, behavior and culture. He has worked over 20 years as an information security manager, practice manager and consultant to lead and support positive change that helps organizations manage risk. As creator of the SABC™ (Security Awareness, Behavior & Culture) Framework, Bruce advocates the role of the human factor in information security through speaking engagements and his "Re-thinking the Human Factor" podcast and book.
