The Top Information Security Podcasts — Part Two


This post is part of a series, check out Part 1 here. 

In the past five years, podcasts have grown from a fringe media to one of the most popular ways to get news and information.

Information Security podcasts haven’t exactly been driving force of the explosion in podcast popularity— there’s no Serial for Identity and Access Management (IAM)—but for those in the know, or those who need to know, Infosec podcasts can be a great resource.  So check out our top infosec podcasts and educate yourself next time you’re stuck in traffic or handling a rote office task.

This is by no means a complete list, so please let me know if I missed any in the comments below!

Defensive Security

Defensive security is a cyber security podcast covering breaches and strategies for defense. Show runners Jerry Bell and Andrew Kalat characterize the show as “an attempt to look at recent security news and pick out lessons we can apply to the organizations we are charged with keeping secure,” and the two infosec veterans do just that. Check out Defensive Security here, or get it on iTunes.

Crypto-Gram Security 

Crypto-Gram Security is a monthly information security newsletter written by cryptographer, cyber security expert, and author Bruce Schneier and read aloud by Dan Henage since 2005. The Crypto-Gram newsletter is an invaluable resource for a variety of information security news and is a particularly valuable source for encryption news and information. Check out the Crypto-Gram newsletter here, and get the podcast here.

Eurotrash Security Podcast

The Eurotrash Security Podcast was created by a group of European hackers and infosec professionals as a “counterpoint to the myriad of North American infoSec podcasts present in the industry.” Eurotrash is a technical podcast with a casual (and sometimes NSFW) tone and is one of the only Europe-based infosec podcasts available. Get the Eurotrash Security Podcast here.

Security Now!

Security Now! is a weekly security column and podcast from Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte. Every week Gibson and Laporte catch up on the week’s most interesting security events before embarking on a more in-depth discussion of the week’s topic. Common topics include security vulnerabilities, firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), password security and more. Get the Security Now! podcast here.
