Podcast Platitudes

by | Sep 2, 2020 | Blog

Cybersecurity is an ever-evolving industry tackling some really challenging problems. Here at Nisos we truly feel that it is necessary to learn from the best at every opportunity, and we try to ensure that all of the material we present makes its consumers better at their jobs the day they consume it.

It’s not just podcast platitudes, listen to the experts; their suggestions and processes work!

With that in mind, we’d like to congratulate Nisos friend and former Cyber5® Podcast guest Charles Finfrock, the insider threat program manager at Tesla. On the podcast in June, Finfrock highlighted simple and inexpensive steps program managers can take to achieve success, including routine infosec awareness training for all employees.

Tesla publicly confirmed last week that it thwarted an attempted Russian-origin recruitment of a Tesla employee designed to install ransomware on the Tesla network. Tesla was able to take action which resulted not only in its network being protected, but the would-be attacker being arrested by the FBI.

Well done Tesla team!

Listen here to Finfrock’s comments on how to build an employee-centric monitoring program:
