Security Podcast

Great Podcast on Security by Ed Amoroso
In this great IT Conversations interview [Link] with Sondra Schneider, Ed Amoroso of AT&T shares his views on security in a networked world.

Ed says his biggest fear is "all the bad software out there" that is "riddled with vulnerabilities." He blames the software engineering discipline and suggests that it needs to become more like civil engineering or medicine, requiring "years of tortured residency," whereas today many developers get into software development with little formal training.

He speaks here of what he calls "in the cloud network based security." If you do any kind of IT support, I strongly recommend this conversation.
