🎙 About the episode

You have to start with a risk assessment and oh, we're not defending against ghosts, right? - Dr. Chris Mitchell

"We don't necessarily need all of this fancy machine learning stuff. It helps us respond to machine-based threats at machine-based time. But when you're not patching those Windows XP machines that still live on your network, when you're not teaching your users and your people about what the threats are that exist out there and how not to click on a phishing email and how to report these things to someone that can do something with them… All that fancy machine learning goes out the window, right? It just doesn't really help." - Ryan Murray
