Down the Rabbithole - Episode 07 - David Elfering's "As the Security Lightbulb Turns"


  My guest David Elfering (@icxc on Twitter) and I go all over the map covering various SecBiz related topic, and come up with a fantastic set of quotes including: "No matter how long you hold the light bulb up, the world will not revolve around InfoSec" and other gems.  We talk through how to present to a business group or executive, the communication and written skills required and various other topics related with bridging the business - security gap.  This is a great episode to listen to - we cover a lot of ground.
