"Don't waste your commute listening to pop music. Listen to infosec lectures and podcasts." Industry veteran Mikko Hyppönen recently shared some useful advice for those wanting to start a career in cybersecurity.
I fully agree with Mikko. In fact, I think this advice should be extended to anyone already working in cybersecurity – listening to podcasts is a good way to keep up with the constant changes in the world of security. Though I am not blessed with a daily commute, I still manage to find a lot of time to listen to podcasts, among them quite a few on security.
Here are some of my favourites.
Of course there are many more excellent podcasts. Most weeks, the Threatpost team look back at the stories they published that week, as well as fitting in the odd interview. Sophos researchers Chet Wisniewski and Paul Ducklin look at what was published on the Naked Security blog in their podcast. And if you'd like to hear Bruce Schneier's popular monthly Cryptogram newsletter in audio format, there is a podcast for that too.
