Healthy Paranoia Show 15: The Dudes of REN-ISAC

so the bro-famous Mr Keith Lehigh and I recorded a packetpushers[.net] podcast a few weeks back that was released over the weekend:

"It’s the latest dudilicious episode of Healthy Paranoia! This time we’ll be covering the topic of information sharing and analysis centers (ISAC), specifically in the research and educational networking sector, aka REN-ISAC. Joining Mrs. Y on this adventure into the land of dudeness is Wes Young, REN-ISAC Principal Security Engineer and Architect (El Duderino), Keith Lehigh, Lead Security Engineer from Indiana University (the Duder) and bromance expert and developer, Liam Randall. We’ll explore subjects such as:

• The history of ISACs.
• The benefits of information sharing or crowdsourcing security.
• Which intelligence feeds are better: paid or free?
• Mrs. Y’s bandwidth envy.
• Why mixing beer, zombies and lawyers is always a bad idea."

the target audience for this is def "outside" the RI community, but it was a fun conversation and does dig a little into the roots of how we came to be, how we share data and how our community rocks at sharing intel… so if you're new or just looking for a fun listen:
