This week’s show is brought to you by Thinkst Canary – they make hardware honeypots and the tools you need to deploy canarytokens at scale. They also make virtual honeypots! This week Thinkst’s founder Haroon Meer will be along to wave his finger at basically all of us over what he sees as the security discipline’s tendency to not really learn anything from security conferences. It’s “contertainment,” he says, followed by “GET OFF MY LAWN”. Links to everything that we discussed are below and you can follow Patrick or Adam on Twitter if that’s your thing.
